Quality leadership in Australian schools

Teaching Australia 
This week Curriculum Leadership publishes the second of two edited extracts from Teaching and leading for quality Australian schools, a report commissioned by Teaching Australia. Quality leadership in schools provides direction, involves a process of influence with intention, and is value-based and vision-driven. There is conclusive evidence that principals have a salient but indirect effect on student outcomes through the goals they establish and the quality of the learning environment they foster. However, while it is common to equate leadership with principals and faculty heads, the research reviewed in this report recognises the variety of leadership roles within a school.
