Unpacking the Challenges of Leadership at the School and District Level


by Kenneth Leithwood & Nona A. Prestine ó 2002

This chapter consists of two main sections. The first section reviews what we know about the challenges facing leaders in highly accountable contexts and the nature of productive responses on their part. This review encompasses both theoretical and empirical literatures, and most of it is specifically focused on school-level leadership.

The second main section of the chapter reports a case study of an exemplary districtís efforts to make the most of large-scale reform initiated in the state of Illinois.
