The book aims at both American and British educators. It draws extensively on the research carried out in areas such as education and economics regarding distributed leadership. The author argues convincingly that current leadership methods are not fit for purpose in the 21st century education. Globalisation and personalisation have changed the world unrecognisably and education needs to serve the new, challenging demands with innovative approaches that require original ways of thinking and more lateral approaches towards decision making.
Professor Harris provides a good balance between covering theoretical background of distributive leadership with some outstanding practical examples from a range of schools and colleges in England.
The book would be useful to senior school leaders or those who might be looking to step into such roles.
