Summary

An important contribution to the literature in administration, Evaluation-Based Leadership moves school leaders and decision-makers toward a new model of operation rooted in evaluation. Responding to the current increased national and local concern for effective schools, Glasman's work suggests a move toward an innovative paradigm that will help both inservice professionals and future administrators view their responsibilities with heightened insight and renewed initiative. Through his analysis Glasman integrates important theoretical research and practical considerations with a special emphasis on the role of the school principal as one whose work can enhance student achievements.

Naftaly S. Glasman is Dean of the Graduate School of Education at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
