This text in ABL’s new Educational Leadership series from Peabody College covers historical and current trends in leadership in a very practical way, using cases and a problem-solving approach as vehicles for examination.

The text was developed by a leading scholar in educational leadership as part of a series from one of the leading schools of education in the world. It has a strong basis in current research, and easy-to-use, intuitive features. It strikes an effective balance between the informational and the pedagogical. It covers trends (both historical and current) in educational leadership. The “Modern” approach of this book explores professional challenges, performance expectations, and operating conditions encountered by contemporary American school leaders. The case studies and interactive pedagogy make this a very practical text.
