Establishing a set of standards that draw the accreditation borders too tightly around preparation programs is a real danger for the development of education. Only dormant programs contain no anomalies, no ambiguities, or contradictions. Good preparation programs will undoubtedly reflect uncertainty, as well as internal inconsistencies, if they are vibrant and rigorous for the development and application of new knowledge.

The Sage Encyclopedia of Educational Leadership and Administration, originally published in print format in 2006, presents the most recent theories, research, terms, concepts, ideas, and histories on educational leadership and school administration as it is taught in preparation programs and practiced in schools and colleges today. With over 600 entries, written by more than 200 professors, graduate students, practitioners, and association officials, the two volumes of this Encyclopedia represent the most comprehensive knowledge base of educational leadership and school administration that has, as yet, been compiled.

Key features include:

  • Represents a "knowledge dynamic" of the field by presenting ideas and perspectives that are in the minds, hearts, and aspirations of those practicing in the profession
  • Includes a wide range of topics covering teaching and learning, curriculum, psychology and motivation, budgeting and finance, law, statistics, research, personnel management, planning, supervision, and much more
  • Contains over 75 biographical sketches of people whose ideas, aspirations, and lives have contributed much to the profession
  • Animates reader's thinking and defines possibilities by presenting terms, ideas, concepts, research, and theories that are circulating in the field
