A Collective Act

Leading a Small School

By Michelle Anderson, Michelle Davis, Peter Douglas, David Lloyd, Barrey Niven, Hilary Thiele

A Collective Act: Leading a Small School explores the characteristics of, the context for, and the challenges to successful leadership. The book includes practical and challenging images of leading in a small school. It identifies what the research says about small school leadership and then provides five compelling stories of leading in such settings from various areas of Australia. Together, the research and the cases present a strong argument for better understanding this distinct context of leadership. The book is relevant to small school leaders as it links research with key challenges and how they can be addressed in practical, creative, and innovative ways. Comprehensive and accessible through the case studies and descriptions of learning, it is a useful guide to aspiring small school leaders, as well as those who already find themselves in a leadership position.
