Learning to Lead: The Dynamics of the High School Principalship


Dismissing current books and courses which neatly compartmentalize the ideal principalship, Donaldson examines the everyday realities of the position. Drawing from his own experience and contemporary studies, he identifies three crucial functions of high school leaders: choosing activities that serve the school's purposes; identifying and enlisting capable partners; and developing and maintaining productive relationships. As expectations for principals and schools rise and as current literature prescribes unrealistic principal roles, Learning to Lead is a rich hands-on source for the examination of the organizational dynamics of secondary schools and leadership.
