Leading Researcher Joseph Murphy and his colleague Daniela Torre shed light on two critical issues in education today: student underachievement and how to build effective, high-performing schools. Murphy draws from considerable research and scholarship in the area of school reform. This research is based on meaningful links with the worlds of practice and policy, and builds upon our most robust understanding about school improvement. The book examines the historical footings of the American public school to expose the economic, political, social, and cultural currents that have shaped and continue to influence our understanding of public education and underachievement.

This book examines how to encourage the development of others towards social justice practices. The processes of development include practices such as mentoring, coaching, professional development, and the exploration of alternatives to reculture the work environment and enhance collaborative partnerships. Many groups play a role in the leadership and improvement of social justice opportunities in education, such as students, new teachers, veteran teachers, teacher leaders, new campus leaders, veteran campus leaders, parents, district leaders, noncertified school personnel and board of education members. Their preparation and development are explored in this volume through the people’s voices and experiences. Finally, challenges can be recognized in the effort to encourage the development of others, including local and federal policies, new forms of academic delivery, and the preparation of leaders in everevolving educational structures. These issues will be fully explored with the aim of informing practitioners and scholars in the field of educational leadership.

In this book, educational consultant and group coach Donna Reid argues that popular vehicles for improving school cultures and student achievement, such as professional learning communities and critical friends groups, too often fail because the participants are unaware or unwilling to make the required changes for successful collaboration and change. To assist facilitators and group leaders, the author presents narrative cases that examine the experiences of teacher leaders, principals, consultants, and parents as they negotiate the difficulties of reluctant team members, hostile colleagues, maintaining group interest, sharing responsibility, using technology, and cultural competency. Each case includes questions for reflection that can be used individually or in small groups to improve facilitation skills. Book Features: Addresses the roles of the facilitator and participants. Focuses on the complex contexts in which educators must work. Illustrates a range of challenges with possible ways to manage them. Offers strategies for building sustainable relationships, such as how to include new colleagues and work with difficult people. Discusses common tensions, such as sharing responsibility, respecting confidentiality, and developing cultural competence. “With its engaging and informative mix of case descriptions, discussions following the cases, and questions for the reader, this book is a welcome change from other books on facilitation and coaching. As I read, I imagined that someone had been looking over my shoulder as I coached my first CFG, and as I have supported others doing the same over the years. A must-read for all those engaging in their first few years of facilitating collaborative teacher teams!” —Gene Thompson-Grove, educational consultant and founding board member, School Reform Initiative “This book is a must-read for anyone in the practice of collaborative coaching and facilitation. By tapping into the power of story, the author provides a reflective space that allows the reader to consider coaching moves, as well as experience and reflect on common potential pitfalls in coaching or facilitating a group.” —P. Tim Martindell, president, Texas Council of Teachers of English Language Arts, Coordinator Secondary ELA, Fort Bend Independent School District

Interest in and knowledge of leadership and learning, separately and together, is an international and continuing phenomenon. This book adds to a somewhat under-researched aspect of the field. It focuses both on a particular form of leadership – teacher leadership, and on a particular form of learning – professional development. It considers the connection between teacher leadership and professional development and the first chapter relates this connection to a ‘Leadership for Learning’ conceptual framework, developed through an international, three-year project. The book’s chapters explore teacher leadership and professional development from a number of perspectives, giving rise to three points of particular significance. Firstly the chapters show that, either by accident or design, there is a growing cadre of teacher leaders emerging from a multitude of professional development activities and initiatives. Secondly, a number of new conceptual frameworks are put forward, alongside the adaption and development of extant ones that add to the ever-increasing theorisation of educational leadership and professional development literature. Thirdly, the chapters provide evidence of the connections between leadership and learning as conceptualised in the ‘Leadership for Learning’ framework. This book was originally published as a special issue of Professional Development in Education.
