Learning-Centered School Leadership

School Renewal in Action

Edited By Jianping Shen and Walter L. Burt

This book, a sequel to A Resource Book for Improving Principals’ Learning-Centered Leadership, first introduces the content and process of the Learning-Centered Leadership Development Program. It then presents nine case studies and a cross-case analysis of how schools enacted the content and process, in a framework of school renewal, to improve their school operations and student achievement. The book is unique in offering an inside view from the perspective of the school personnel. Finally, it summarizes the parameters of the renewal model (versus the reform model). The book will be useful for school administrators and teachers, educational policy makers, and educational researchers.
