Improving School Leadership

Volume 1: Policy and Practice

Directorate for Education

By Beatriz Pont, Deborah Nusche and Hunter Moorman

As countries strive to reform education systems and improve student results, school leadership is high on education policy agendas. But in many countries, the men and women who run schools are overburdened, underpaid and near retirement. And few people are lining up for their jobs.

What leadership roles contribute most to improving student learning? How best to allocate and distribute leadership tasks? How to develop the right skills for effective school leadership? How to make the profession attractive to high-quality candidates?

this book is based on an OECD study of school leadership practices and policies around the world. Offereing a valuable cross-country perspective, it identifies four policy levers and a range of policy options to help governments improve school leadership now and build sustainable leadership for the future.

Improving School Leadership

Volume 2: Case Studies on System Leadership

Directorate for Education

Edited by Beatriz Pont, Deborah Nusche and David Hopkins

The job of school leaders has changed radically as countries transform their education systems to prepare young people for today's rapid technological change, economic globalisation and increased migration. One new role they are being asked to play is to work beyond their school borders so that they can contribute not only to the success of their own school but tot he system as a whole - so that every school is a good school.

This book explores what specialists are saying about system leadership for school improvement. Case studies examine innovative approaches to sharing leadership across schools in Belgium (Flanders), Finland and the United Kingdom (England) and leadership development prgrammes for system improvement in Australia and Austria. As these are emerging practices, the book provides a first international comparison and assessment of the state of the art of system leadership.
