NEW UKZN BOOK ON EDUCATION LEADERSHIP, MANAGEMENT AND GOVERNANCE

Educational Leadership, Management and Policy (ELMP) staff members in the School of Education have published a book titled: Education Leadership, Management and Governance in South Africa.

This book, launched recently on the Edgewood campus, is a result of three years of collaboration between ELMP staff, postgraduate students and international scholars based in Higher Education Institutions.

The publication was edited by UKZN’s Professor Vitallis Chikoko and Professor Kenneth M Jorgensen of Aalborg University in Denmark.

The book has 11 thematic chapters covering five parts:  (i) Organisational Learning, (ii) Leadership and Management in Schools, (iii) Gender Issues in Leadership and Management of Schools, (iv) Policy Implementation and (v) School Governance.

According to one of the contributors, Dr Inba Naicker, the book will be useful to people in a variety of fields, including teachers, school managers, education officials, students, academics and researchers.

‘The book seeks to contribute knowledge to South Africa’s transformation agenda in terms of how education is led, managed and governed. It also examines how diversity can be promoted and celebrated in South African schools,’ he said.

The book is published by Nova Science publishers Inc. and is available from Adams Booksellers. The book, which costs around R1000, can also be bought directly from Mr Cedric Sissing (phone: 031-2612320).
