Leadership for School Improvement

The Leadership for School Improvement Special Interest Group (LSI SIG) of AERA announces a partnership with Information Age Publishing (IAP) for a book series devoted to current research in national and international school improvement.

The purpose of the LSI SIG is to examine how leadership of teachers, principals and superintendents influences instructional capacity resulting in improved student outcomes and how policy guides this collaborative effort. In addition, the Leadership for School Improvement SIG encourages discussion and development of the philosophical, theoretical and empirical tenets guiding school and system renewal.
