Reviews

Within this book there are real gems and some interesting accounts of professional learning, leadership and the challenges of being a GEN X leader ... It brings together many well-known authors, it covers a wide range of topics and it traverses a great deal of leadership territory. * Journal of Research in International Education *
A considerable strength of the book is the range of 'voices' included in the thirty-two authors of the twenty short chapters: academics, teachers, leaders from a range of organisations, several of whom are 'boundary-crossers' between the worlds of research, policy and practice. * Journal of Education Policy *
The wide international research experience of Earley and Greany, drawing on the sector-leading abilities of colleagues at the IOE, has brought together a series of chapters which will be of relevance to national and local policy makers, education leaders, researchers, academics, students and practitioners ... [A] very readable compendium of current thinking on the policy and practice of system reform. * Wales Journal of Education *
Several authors have contributed their expertise on leadership, giving different perspectives on what leadership can look like, which makes this book incredibly strong. For academics and graduate students teaching and learning in leadership programs, this book is a gem! * Laura Trujillo-Jenks, Associate Professor, Texas Woman's University, USA *
Highly relevant for school leaders, evidence-based, and theoretically robust, this new book contextualises and synthesises international perspectives on the contemporary challenges of improving the learning opportunities and outcomes of young people. * Helen Wildy, Professor and Dean of the Faculty of Education, University of Western Australia, Australia *
This volume provides an interesting and detailed selection of thoroughly researched and well written chapters that speak to a broad cross section of those interested in education. Students, academics, practitioners and leaders alike will find something of use and interest in these pages. Tackling some of the more difficult subject areas, this book does not shy away from critique and provides many interesting points for continued thought and consideration. * Gary Husbands, Lecturer, University of Stirling, UK *
