dc.description.abstractIn the final chapter, John Macbeath and Tony Townsend try to bring together the key elements of what was found during the course of the handbooks chapters. One major issue is the need to find a way to restore balance to what the purpose of schools is and to support teachers, school leaders and even whole systems to promote leadership for learning in all of its breadth and complexity while both political and community interests still focus on maximising test scores on narrowly focused outcomes. They ask whether the term 'leadership for learning' is just another way of saying 'instructional leadership' and argue against this, but suggest that further research is necessary to tease out the differences between the two, and one possible area for such work is looking at school ecology as a means of supporting both leadership and learning.
