Leading and Managing People in Education by Tony Bush and David Middlewood pdf free download. This is the second version of this highly successful book. Since it was first published in 1997, there have been many changes in education and, specifically, in the leadership and management of people. These changes include new research and literature, and developments in policy and practice in many countries. This new volume gives much more attention to international research and practice, as educational leadership has become a field of global significance during the past eight years.

One major change since the previous edition is the increasing, and relentless, focus on performance. This emphasis is reflected in the book, notably in Chapters 2 and 12.

Schools in England, for example, are increasingly data driven and are expected to achieve nationally imposed targets in public examinations and tests. In the eyes of the government, and increasingly amongst parents and the media, performance in narrowly defined tests, particularly of literacy and numeracy, is becoming the be-all and end-all of education, to the detriment of other legitimate purposes of schooling such as personal development, pupil and student welfare, and the provision of opportunities for music, drama and sport.
