"This volume: * focuses on education reform and professional development processes intended to prepare and develop prospective and practicing educational leaders into leadership positions; * examines cultural, political, legal, economic and social justice issues that affect leaders while serving in the role of educational leader/learner; * examines the various ways in which educational leadership, politics, policy and reform are interconnected; * focus on the critical significance of transforming education leadership agendas if educational leaders are to truly change the face of how meaningful leadership development and preparation is planned and implemented for effectiveness; * introduces various frameworks for restructuring leadership and learning including the need for collaborative and community-based efforts for redesigning, planning, and implementing leadership development programs; * encourages interdisciplinary educational leaders to re-examine who they are as leaders of learning, as learners of leadership, and life-long learners. A corollary purpose of this volume is to encourage a discourse that focuses on 'out-of-the-box' approaches in preparing future school leaders to push the envelope of leadership practice."
