"Linking Leadership to Student Learning" clearly shows how school leadership improves student achievement. The book is based on an ambitious five-year study on educational leadership that was sponsored by The Wallace Foundation. The authors studied 43 districts, across 9 states and 180 elementary, middle, and secondary schools. In this book, Kenneth Leithwood, Karen Seashore Louis, and their colleagues report their findings. They examined leadership at each organizational level in the school system--classroom, school, district, community, and state. Their comprehensive approach to investigating school leadership offers a balanced understanding of how the structures within which leaders operate, shape what they do. The results within will have significant implications for future policy and practice. Following the first chapter, entitled "Leadership and Learning: The Critical Connection", the book is divided into two parts. Part One: School Leadership that Matters for Students, contains the following chapters: (2) Collective Leadership: The Reality of Leadership Distribution Within the School Community (Kenneth Leithwood and Doris Jantzi); (3) Shared and Instructional Leadership: When Principals and Teachers Successfully Lead Together (Karen Seashore Louis and Kyla Wahlstrom); (4) Distributed Leadership in Action: a Complex Pattern of People, Tasks, and Goals (Stephen E. Anderson); (5) Core Practices: The Four Essential Components of the Leader's Repertoire (Kenneth Leithwood); and (6) An Up-Close View of Instructional Leadership: a Grounded Analysis (Kyla Wahlstrom). Part Two: "The Broad and Unique Role of Districts in the School Improvement Business", presents these chapters: (7) How to Harness Family and Community Energy: The District's Role (Molly F. Gordon and Karen Seashore Louis); (8) Confidence for School Improvement: a Priority for Principals (Kenneth Leithwood, Blair Mascall, and Doris Jantzi); (9) Principal Efficacy: District-Led Professional Development (Kenneth Leithwood, Stephen E. Anderson, and Karen Seashore Louis); (10) Succession: a Coordinated Approach to Leadership Distribution (Blair Mascall and Kenneth Leithwood); (11) Data Use: An Exploration from the District to the School (Stephen E. Anderson, Kenneth Leithwood, and Karen Seashore Louis); (12) The "District Difference": a New Perspective on the Local Challenges for Improvement (Stephen E. Anderson and Karen Seashore Louis); (13) Case Studies: District Responses to State Leadership (Karen Seashore Louis, Stephen E. Anderson, and Emanda Thomas). Appended are: (1) Scale Reliability for Variables; and (2) Additional Evidence Related to Chapter Seven. (Contains 14 figures, and 23 tables.).

Praise for Linking Leadership to Student Learning "Kenneth Leithwood and Karen Seashore Louis offer a seminal new contribution to the leadership field.

This is a 'must read' for academics and practitioners alike."—Martha McCarthy, President's Professor, Loyola Marymount University, and Chancellor's Professor Emeritus, Indiana University "The question is no longer whether school and district leader's impact student learning, but rather how they do it. The authors provide a convincing answer, one that recognizes the crucial interaction between leader and locality."—Daniel L. Duke, Professor of Educational Leadership, University of Virginia

This book discusses four approaches to incorporating student achievement in teacher evaluation. Seven chapters discuss: (1) "Teacher Evaluation and Student Achievement: An Introduction to the Issues"; (2) "What is the Relationship between Teaching and Learning?" (e.g., whether teachers are responsible for student learning and how to measure student learning); (3) "Assessing Teacher Performance through Comparative Student Growth: The Dallas Value-Added Accountability System"; (4) "Assessing Teacher Performance through Repeated Measures of Student Gains: The Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System"; (5) "Assessing Teacher Performance with Student Work: The Oregon Teacher Work Sample Methodology"; (6) "Assessing Teacher Performance in a Standards-Based Environment: The Thompson, Colorado, School District"; and (7) Teacher Evaluation and Student Achievement: What are the Lessons Learned and Where Do We Go from Here?" (e.g., basic requirements of fair testing programs that are to be used to inform teacher evaluation). Chapters 3-6 include information on the purposes of the accountability system and how it was developed; student assessment strategies; how the accountability system works; how the accountability system relates to teacher evaluation; the advantages and disadvantages of the accountability system for teacher evaluation; and results of implementation. (Contains 66 references.) (SM)

Strategic Management of Human Capital in Education offers a comprehensive and strategic approach to address what has become labeled as "talent and human capital." Grounded in extensive research and examples of leading edge districts, this book shows how the entire human resource system in schools—from recruitment, to selection/placement, induction, professional development, performance management and evaluation, compensation, and career progression—can be reformed and restructured to boost teacher and principal effectiveness in ways that dramatically improve instructional practice and student learning. Strategic Management of Human Capital in Education guides educators towards putting more effective teachers, teacher leaders, and principals in the country’s schools—especially in poverty-impacted urban and rural communities—equipping those teacher and principals with instructional and leadership expertise, and rewarding and retaining those who are successful in attaining these objectives. Drawing from cases, experiences, and deliberations from a national task force, this book outlines a comprehensive framework for how to transform current human resource management practices into authentic, strategic talent management systems in order to improve student achievement.

This book is intended for students, leaders and managers who wish to explore the personal relevance and conceptual bases of educational leadership and organizational management and to develop their expertise in this field. It is a book written for both scholars and practitioners. The general public will also appreciate the accessible language in the book. There are two goals in the experiential learning process. One is to learn the specifics of a particular subject matter, in this case, educational leadership and organizational management. The other is to learn about one’s own strengths and weaknesses as a learner. This book is focused on the analysis of prevalent theories and concepts and their application to the development of leadership and management skills, and the knowledge and attitudes required to solve real world problems in the workplace. For decades, students have focused their studies of educational leadership and organizational management theories in classroom settings without actual opportunities to apply these theories in the workplace. A profound and significant lesson learned in history is that we must follow the principle of integrating theory with practice (unity of theory with practice). Then, we can follow the policy of walking on two legs, an analogy made by the late Chinese chairman, Mao Ze Dong.
