Moral leadership in schools

William D. Greenfield Jr (Portland State University, Portland, Oregon, USA)

ISSN: 0957-8234

Article publication date: 1 April 2004



The genesis of the moral leadership concept in educational administration and examples of studies exploring this idea during the 1979‐2003 period are discussed. The author recommends more contextually sensitive descriptive studies with a focus on the social relations among school leaders and others, giving particular attention, in a phenomenological sense, to the meanings, perspectives, and espoused purposes of school leaders’ actions, social relationships, and interpersonal orientations.
