The new Seventh Edition of the widely popular text from Sergiovanni and Green, The Principalship, gives readers an authoritative look at where and how principals spend their time, standards that inform their behavior, and the competencies they need to master in order to be effective. In it, a new theory for the principalship is advocated that encourages practitioners and students to aspire to the highest good for themselves and all stakeholders. The book addresses today’s most current issues; includes updated research on the principalship; features video clips and Self-Check Quizzes (in the Pearson eText only) and scenarios illustrating important concepts; and continues to focus on leadership as a moral craft that advocates imagination, creativity, and ethical integrity. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video and assessments.

Reginald Leon Green is Professor of Educational Leadership at the University of Memphis. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Memphis, he was on the faculty of educational administration at Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio. Earlier, Dr. Green served at the teacher, principal, deputy superintendent, and superintendent levels of elementary and secondary education. 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. 

 

Most recently, Dr. Green published the 4th edition of the book entitled, Practicing the Art of Leadership: A Problem-Based Approach to Implementing the ISLLC Standards and the first edition of The Four Dimensions of Principal Leadership: A Foundation for Leading 21st Century Schools. He has also authored a book on inner-city education, as well as various articles concerning such topics as: 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 school renewal.  This work lead to the development of the Center for Urban School Leadership where Dr. Green administered programs for five (5) years to prepare principals for leading urban schools using a non-traditional approach. Currently, Dr. Green teaches courses in educational leadership with a focus on instructional leadership, school renewal, and models for turning around low performing schools.
