Standards-Based LeadershipISBN: 9781475816914
Today's school principals are charged with the responsibility of creating learning organizations that emphasize success for all students. Framing decisions in standards that are grounded in research and best practice, this book provides a structure for learning and growth for both current and aspiring principals. Each chapter in Standards-Based Leadership: A Case Study Book for the Principalship is organized around a Texas Principal Competency Exam and related to the 2014 Texas Principal Standards and 2011 ELCC standards. The cases provided for discussion are all based on real problems that challenge principals in Texas or any other state. By applying the standards and using the brief literature reviews as resources to guide decision making, principals are provided with a framework for implementation of specific strategies that will best help them successfully lead schools.
