Introduction: Global perspectives on educational leadership reform: The development and preparation of leaders of learning and learners of leadership

Abstract

A growing concern among education reformers and their communities is whether emerging and practicing education leaders are prepared to face political, economic, cultural, and social pressures and create schools that advocate for education that advances leadership for learning. Schools are thrust into the realistic notion that they must prepare children and communities for participation in a multicultural, multiethnic, multireligious, multiability, and a multinational society. Research suggests that leadership development and preparation programs ought to engage in innovative ways that promote a broader and deeper understanding of issues related to reforming educational leadership for learning and learning for leadership (Brandt, 1998; Darling-Hammond, LaPointe, Meyerson, Orr, & Cohen, 2007; Jean-Marie, Normore, & Brooks, 2009; Knapp, Copland, & Talbert, 2003).
