For courses in Educational Policy and Educational Leadership; For potential and current K-12 administrators From a leader in the field-a comprehensive text covering education policy and the policy process that encourages future educational leaders to be proactive-and gives them a firm understanding of educational policy and the important political theories upon which it is based. While expressing the belief that it is important for today's school leaders to know how to track educational policies and to seek to influence them, Frances Fowler, a well respected authority in the field of educational policy, recognizes that most leaders have little or no background in political science or policy studies and even less experience with the state politics of education. For these future and current administrators, Professor Fowler presents essential background information about the cultural, economic, demographic, and institutional roots of educational policy. She identifies and describes the major policy actors, and gives educators in depth descriptions of each stage of the policy process, complete with numerous examples of how policy unfolds in the development of educational policy.A goal of the book is to ensure that educational leaders understand the basic political theories that underpin educational policy development. To that end, the author provides example of how to apply this knowledge in everyday practice.

This first-of-its-kind resource offers principals and other instructional leaders up to date knowledge and theories of teaching and learning, plus practical curriculum applications of those perspectives. Reaching beyond the traditional concept of supervision in which principals were responsible for rating teachers' effectiveness, Instructional Leadership, 4/e asserts that teachers and principals must work as colleagues to improve teaching and learning in schools. Using a learning-centered approach that emphasizes making decisions that support student learning, the authors address issues critical to the teaching and learning process: student differences, learning, student motivation, teaching, classroom management, assessing student learning, and assessing and changing school climate and culture.
