The Moral Imperative of School Leadership
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The role of the principal is pivotal to systemic school change. The Moral Imperative of School Leadership contains a fundamental message and it extends the discussion that began in his earlier publication, What's Worth Fighting in Headship. Michael Fullan examines the moral purpose of school leadership and its critical role in "changing the context" in which the role is embedded. In this bold step forward, Michael Fullan calls for principals to become agents as well as beneficiaries of the processes of school change. In an effort to make the position more rewarding and exciting, he shifts the principal's role from one of a site-based superman or superwoman, and recasts it as one in which principals figure prominently both within their school, and within the larger school system that surrounds them.
