Book Description

Student-Centered Leadership offers a timely and thoughtful resource for school leaders who want to turn their ideals into action. Written by educational leadership expert Viviane Robinson, the book shows leaders how they can make a bigger difference to the quality of teaching and learning in their school and ultimately improve their students' performance.

This book is based not on fad or fashion but on the best available evidence about the impact of different types of leadership on student outcomes. The book includes examples of five types of leadership practice as well as rich accounts of the knowledge and skills that leaders need to employ them with confidence.

Filled with practical lessons, clear information, and much inspiration, Robinson encourages leaders to experiment with changing how they lead so they can transform their schools for the better.

Student-Centered Leadership is part of the Jossey-Bass Leadership Library in Education series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Supports my beliefs January 17, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As an instructional leader/administrator who is a student of leadership authors, I have found this book to be an invaluable support and guide as I lead and guide a new faculty and staff. Student centered is what all instructional leaders say they are, but my goal has always been to truly BE student centered. This book guided me so well in my journey that I bought another copy for my curriculum building leader so we can study it together...a great refresher for me and a wonderful new resource for her.
