This book examines 44 cases that represent real-life situations in today’s schools, with issues and topics ranging from the separation of church and state, personal leadership development, the No Child Left Behind Act, fundraising, and leadership attributes. Each case is fully explored keeping in mind the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) standards and how these standards can be applied effectively in practice.   The book also includes an ISLLC matrix on the inside cover that correlates the subject matter covered in each case with the ISLLC standards.   The revised third edition includes a new end-of-chapter activity called “Developing Your Leadership Expertise,” which provides readers with the opportunity to practice applying what they’ve just read to the ISLLC standards; five new cases that address issues not covered in previous editions; and a revised “Questions to Research and Consider” feature, which now includes higher-order thinking questions and inquiry-based activities.   From the Back Cover For those pursuing a career in educational administration the third edition of this text offers a unique opportunity to engage in case analysis.

"Hanson is incredibly creative and brings additional breadth and depth to my introductory school leadership course.  The cases stand alone, but also flow together to paint a picture of 'what ifs' for asiring school leaders" Casey Graham Brown, Ph.D. Texas A&M University--Commerce   "The author's writing abilities are well-developed for the story-telling genre.  Each case seems to flow in a natural manner that keeps the reader's interest.  The writer appears to be up-to-date, professional, and on top of current issues in educational administration.  This book would be a valuable resource in guiding classroom discussions and developing self-awareness."
