The author covers the full spectrum of educational leadership theories and how they apply to today's actual classrooms and schools.

Author Biography

Reginald Leon Green is Professor of Educational Leadership at the University of Memphis. He received the Ed.D. in Educational Administration and Supervision from the University of Missouri—Columbia. He has served at the teacher, principal, deputy superintendent, and superintendent levels of K—12 education, and has been in higher education for 15 years. In 1977, Dr. Green was one of five educators chosen nationally to participate in the Rockefeller Foundation’s Superintendency Preparation Program, and, in 1996, he was selected as an associate to the Institute for Educational Renewal, under the leadership of Dr. John Goodlad.

 

Dr. Green has published a book on inner-city education and articles on educational restructuring, primary grade restructuring, gang violence, and other contemporary educational issues. He has completed national inquiries into nurturing characteristics that exist in schools and standards and assessment measures being established as part of the school reform movement. This work led to the development of the Center for Urban School Leadership at the University of Memphis, where Dr. Green administered programs for five years to prepare principals for roles in urban school leadership, using a nontraditional approach.

   

Most recently, Dr. Green distinguished himself with the publication of The Four Dimensions of Principal Leadership: A Foundation for Leading 21st Century Schools.  Currently, he teaches courses in educational leadership with a focus on instructional leadership, school reform, and models for turning around low performing schools. His research interests include school leadership, team building for effective teaching and learning, superintendent/board relations, school district restructuring, and the effects of nurturing characteristics on the academic achievement of students.
