Educational Leadership Policies and Practices highlights voices from different developing countries that echo the need for sustainable, enabling, and liberating educational leadership that will stimulate ideas and ideals to usher new ways of looking at old problems of educational leadership.

In addition, they are based on policy analysis and analytical deconstruction of the mind-boggling nuances of pedagogical, transformational, or transforming leadership theories.

This book will be of interest to policy makers, researchers, educators, PhD/MPhil and graduate students, principals, headteachers, coordinators, heads of departments, and training schools and colleges across developing countries and beyond.
