Additional Book Details

The purpose of this book is to argue for the importance of caring in schools and school leadership and to provide understanding and guidance for the practice of caring school leadership.   This book will provide a counterbalance to today’s emphasis on academic press and accountability. Caring is at the heart of successful school leadership and successful schooling for students.  The authors wish to enrich the understanding and practice of caring school leadership through the perspectives of other human service professions.


This book will affirm for educators the importance of caring as a fundamental part of schooling for students.  It will help practicing educators develop deeper understanding of caring as a quality of human relationships and it will help them understand the relationship of caring to student academic success and well-being.  Most importantly, the book will benefit practicing educators by promoting understanding of caring school leadership and promoting its practice.
