School Leadership in Malaysia

Policy, Research and Practice

This new book provides a comprehensive overview of school leadership in Malaysia, at a time when effective leadership is widely recognised to be an essential component of successful schools. It is also timely because leadership is regarded as a vital element in the Government’s ambitious educational reform agenda.

The book is edited by a world leader in this field and includes contributors with deeply embedded understanding of the Malaysian schools’ context, based on engagement with policy, practice and research. The book addresses major aspects of school leadership, including instructional and distributed leadership, the role of the principal, the work of senior and middle leaders, professional learning communities, leadership and student outcomes, and leadership preparation.

This book is essential reading for postgraduate students and researchers interested in educational leadership and management, and school reform, in an Asian context. It is also recommended for school leaders wishing to engage with policy, practice and research.
