Despite the varied perceptions or ideologies of strategic leadership, educational leaders are expected to become more tactical in their leadership by leading more proactively, efficiently, and with a sense of urgency. This means moving beyond standard operational leadership, which focuses on a single approach or job, and becoming more strategic. Strategic Leadership in PK-12 Settings: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a critical research publication that explores the relevance and necessity of strategic leadership in PK-12 settings and discusses correlates that connect strategic leadership in education in order to achieve positive outcomes in student achievement. Highlighting a range of topics such as curriculum design, personalized learning, and special education, this book is ideal for educators, administrators, principals, superintendents, board members, researchers, academicians, policymakers, and students.
