This volume provides a succinct up-to-date summary of global research on principal instructional leadership as it has evolved over the past 50 years. The book’s particular focus is on the development and use of the Principal Instructional Management Rating Scale (PIMRS). The PIMRS is the most widely used survey instrument designed for assessing instructional leadership for research and practice. It has been used in more than 250 studies in more than 30 countries around the world. The authors provide a detailed conceptual and data-based description of the rationale and development of the instrument as well as the ways in which it has been used in practice. The book also provides, for the first time, a comprehensive assessment of the scale’s measurement properties. This represents essential information for future users of the instrument across different national contexts. Finally, the volume outlines an agenda for improving future research on the role of principal instructional leadership in student learning and school effectiveness.

"The roads to school system improvement can be rocky. The nature of schools and school systems makes them very difficult to change. These are complex organisations, subject to a range of demands and opportunities from multiple stakeholders - from parents and governments, from local communities and business, from other educational authorities and institutions, and, of course, from their staff and students. Effective educational leaders appreciate this complexity and work with colleagues and others across and beyond their education system to make a positive and meaningful difference. Pathways to School System Improvement is designed for educators with an interest and responsibility for school system improvement. Drawing on data from two national pilot programs - Principals as Literacy Leaders (PALL) and Leading Aligned Numeracy Development (LAND) - it looks at effective strategies for implementing system improvement and presents approaches for capitalising on the successes and overcoming the shortcomings of initiative-based reforms."
