What is included with this book?


The Oxford Encyclopedia of Educational Administration is a first-of-its-kind transnational survey of the field of educational administration and leadership. The Encyclopedia's 125+ overview articles, written and reviewed by recognized scholars from around the world, are intended for professors, practitioners, and university-level readers, including advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers in education and adjacent fields. The articles provide a critical examination of the history, progress, direction, and debates about perspectives in a given topic, surveying developments and tensions, and discussing important contributors and contributions. Authors were sought to cover the breadth of schools/universities and leadership practices at both the micro and macro levels, from theories of administration, management, and leadership to practices in specific contexts. The Encyclopedia provides a wide breadth of concepts and themes in the hopes of serving the complex world of practitioners and research scholars with courage, curiosity, and imagination.
