“This is a must-have book for educational leadership.” 

Joseph Mukuni

“This is the single best ‘jackpot’ of a book that I have found. I love these case studies.” 

David De Jong
University of South Dakota

Leadership Case Studies in Education, Second Edition, is an excellent companion text to any educational leadership theory course, but especially when the Leadership: Theory and Practice, Eighth Edition, text is used. The case studies pertain to the important education issues of today and include thought-provoking questions that prompt and encourage class discussion. An excellent book!” 

Renee Wallace

“If they are using Northouse's Leadership: Theory and Practice, I tell them that this book will save them time and have embedded assessments built in that they can use to ensure that their students are understanding each of the different leadership theories addressed in their primary course.”

Lou L. Sabina

“This book is an excellent example of real world leadership scenarios.”

John E. Gray

“This book provides readers an opportunity to dive deep within the salient leadership theories and practices. A natural and necessary companion to Northouse's Leadership: Theory and Practice. Vital application at the doctoral level is needed to prepare current and future leaders in an industry riddled with change. This book offers an accessible way of developing an understanding of education leadership for students’ real time, real situation.”
