Educational law and law-based reform have had a profound influence on the work and professional life of school headteachers. Comparing law-based reform in the USA and the UK, this book presents detailed reflections from headteachers in England who consider what law-based reform has done: providing opportunities for leadership and entrepreneurship, creating divisions between strong and weak schools, and affecting local politics vis-a-vis education. The book offers lawmakers and policymakers some pathways for strengthening the role of leadership in English law-based reform and harnessing headteachers to advance policy and change.
