Glatter, Ron (2003). Governance and educational innovation. In: Davies, Brent and West-Burnham, John E. eds. Handbook of educational leadership and management. London, UK: Pearson Longman, pp. 228–237.



Studies of educational leadership and management too often neglect the framework of governance as a significant element of the wider context within which school leaders operate (Glatter, 1997). The purposes of this chapter are to: Briefly review some recent analytical work on the governance of education; and Ask how appropriate our current models of governance are for meeting the needs of education in a fast-changing society, and whether any more appropriate models can be suggested.
