This second edition of Reframing the Path to School Leadership demonstrates how teachers and school leaders can forge strong leadership paths within their schools, from their initial days in a new position to experiences that arise along their professional journey. Writing for new and seasoned educators, Lee G. Bolman and Terrence E. Deal demonstrate how to use multiple frames-politics, human resources, school structures, and cultural symbols-to develop the powerful habits of mind and perspective needed for addressing the challenging educational issues. Through narrative storytelling and a series of dialogues between a novice and a master teacher and between a new and a seasoned principal, the authors illustrate how framing, then reframing, challenges can result in more effective leadership. Updated throughout, this resource presents end-of-section Leadership Lessons that compliment each chapter, provide an explicit summary of the leadership lessons reflected in the interwoven stories, offer solid strategies for practical application, and include reflective questions for group discussion and individual professional growth.
