`If you are intending to embark upon or support others taking part in any of the programmes of the National College for School Leadership I would definitely keep this book close by' - Cliff Jones, CPD Update What are values? Where do our values come from? How do our values make a difference to education? For educational leaders to achieve distinction in their practice, it is vital to establish their own clear sense of values rather than reacting to the implicit values of others. This engaging book guides readers in thinking for themselves about the values they bring to their task and the values they intend to promote. Crucially, the book promotes critical thought and constructive analysis about the underlying values involved with: - aims and moral purpose in education - individual qualities in educational leadership - vision in education - school ethos and culture - the school as an educational community. By inviting reflection using valuable case studies and work-through activities, as well as referring to a wide range of academic literature, this book will be an important resource for those working towards professional qualifications such as NPQH, and invaluable for anyone aspiring to excellence in educational leadership. Graham Haydon is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy of Education at the Institute of Education, University of London, where he teaches on Masters courses in Values in Education and Applied Educational Leadership and Management.

Grounded in the assumptions that public administration is more than the application of business administration tools to the management of government agencies and that values and ethics are central to all aspects of public administration, this unique new reader examines the nature, scope, structures, functions, and challenges facing public administration at the turn of the 21st century. Five current trends are woven throughout appropriate chapters: globalization; the impact of new information technology; the movement of decisions to lower levels of government (devolution) and down through government hierarchies (empowerment); the delivery of government services by private sector organizations; and the opportunities and challenges of diversity. For those interested in public administration.

This book, jointly authored by two distinguished philosophers and two prominent social scientists, has an ambitious aim: to improve decision-making in education policy. First they dive into the goals of education policy and explain the terms "educational goods" and "childhood goods," adding precision and clarity to the discussion of the distributive values that are essential for good decision-making about education. Then they provide a framework for individual decision-makers that enables them to combine values and evidence in the evaluation of educational policy options. Finally they delve into the particular policy issues of school finance, school accountability, and school choice, and they show how decision makers might approach them in the light of this decision-making framework. The authors are not advocated particular policy choices, however. The focus instead is a smart framework that will make it easier for policymakers (and readers) to identify and think through what they disagree with others about.

Designed to help users analyze the processes by which decisions are made, focus on legal, ethical and career-altering issues, and sharpen their own decision-making skills, this casebook explores the problems confronting school administrators at all levels and in a variety of settings. The cases and a variety of pre- and post-case questions and activities encourage readers to examine their own assumptions, beliefs, values, and administrative style. The cases are based on situations which have confronted administrators in real settings and examine issues from several levels of administration — elementary school, middle school, high school, and the central office. Cases cover a wide, current, and varied array of problems — with an emphasis on case studies of non-dramatic, typical, and daily concerns and problems, as well as some more complex and high-profile scenarios.
