About the Author

Carolyn M. Shields is Professor of Educational Leadership in the College of Education at Wayne State University, Detroit, USA.


"Shields' broad experience working to promote social justice in a wide diversity of settings enables her to provide an abundance of specific examples to illustrate how unjust practices render harm. Providing a well thought out theoretical structure for the various exercises of school leadership, the 2nd edition of Transformative Leadership in Education is enhanced by a selection of reflective questions that invite readers to apply their insights to their own work settings. This book will serve well as a required text for courses focused on school leadership."
-Robert J. Starratt, Professor Emeritus, The Lynch School of Education, Boston College

"The 2nd edition of Transformative Leadership in Education convincingly shows that leaders focusing solely on efficiency is not sustainable since it overlooks context and ethical relationships. Indeed, Shields' notion of transformative leadership is a vital contribution in that it widens conceptions for action and provides significant concepts that enables educational leaders to navigate more justly the messy field of educational organizations and relationships."
-Silvia Edling, Faculty of Education and Business Studies, University of Gavle, Sweden
