Welcome to the companion website for Transformative Leadership in Education by Carolyn M. Shields.

In the volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world of education today, this book presents an alternative approach to leadership for deep and equitable change. Transformative leadership will appeal to aspiring and practicing leaders who want to promote academic achievement, family and community empowerment, democratic engagement, and global citizenship.

On this interactive website, you will find a wealth of resources to further your critical reflection and understanding of transformative leadership, including:

  • Supporting articles and weblinks that provide context to the student and leader stories introduced in chapter vignettes.
  • Video clips, audio passages, and photos, which bring to life the voices of teachers, refugee students, and homeless students discussed throughout the book.
  • The author’s blog, which encourages you to reflect on book content and react to comments from the author.
