Term Definition
leadership

the exercise of authority in directing or managing the work of others. It has lately become a key focus because of its deemed importance in effecting positive change in schools. Clearly there are other relevant issues to consider: professional knowledge and understanding values and morality. The ability to make change happen will only improve schools if that change has merit regardless of the leadership skills employed.
