Teachers are usually trained only to teach but not on education management. Many of them end up in the management role because of opportunities, necessity and personal preference. Oftentimes, they have to learn on the job.

This book is designed to help educational administrators in developing essential skills and competencies for leading and managing educational institutions. Drawing on a set of rich data from many international cases, the authors try to provide a comprehensive coverage from the perspectives of both theory and practice on the issues of educational leadership and administration. Text covers three inter-related parts: history and foundations, structures and processes, leadership and management. Each part contains comprehensive chapters with discussions on theoretical concepts and best practices in approaching leadership and managerial issues in educational contexts including clear learning objective and a focus for each chapter.
