Short Title:

Collaborative School Leadership investigates how and why more collaboration is taking place in a wide range of settings in the UK, South Africa, New Zealand, China, the USA, the Seychelles, Tanzania and Greece, and considers the implications for leadership and the overall effectiveness of schools. David Middlewood, Ian Abbott and Sue Robinson explore various models of collaboration, considering their strengths, weaknesses and how they affect school leadership, including: executive leadership, school-to-school collaboration, federations, alliances, and academy chains. Using case studies, points of reflection, and further reading and summaries, this volume emphasizes how skills and approaches used by leaders of single schools are not automatically transferable to the leadership of several schools and proposes possible ways forward for leadership and consider potential implications for education systems as a whole.
