Product Description

Review

'The book ends with five propositions to help map future directions in cross-cultural research into educational leadership and management. They are pertinent in a theoretical and also in a practical sense and should be borne in mind by leaders and policymakers in their consideration of strategies for school improvement' - Ken Jones, Swansea Institute of Higher Education, writing in the Journal of In-service Education

'The authors offer a rigorous and systematic analysis based on careful definition, illustration and discussion which demonstrates the importance of understanding culture, leadership and their interaction in different contexts: in doing so they provide a powerful antidote to the simplistic export of ideas and lay foundations for a more sophisticated conceptual framework for the study of educational leadership' - John West-Burnham, International Leadership Centre, University of Hull

Format: Paperback
This book was recommended to me as I was doing a Masters degree in educational leadership from an international perspective and I found it very insightful and helpful.
I thought Dr M Wilson's chapter (four) was really good as well.

Well worth a read.

Dimmock and Walker have done a great job examining the concept of culture from different dimensions. The book is enjoyable and is full of case studies from Singapore and Hong Kong about the effect of culture on implementing educational policies.

The book was of great assistance to me although I had no prior experience or background about educational leadership.
