Auerbach, S. (Ed., 2012). Conversations with community-oriented educational leaders. In S. Auerbach (Ed.), School leadership for authentic family and community partnerships: Research perspectives for transforming practice (pp. 233-247). New York: Routledge.
This chapter brings the voices of educational leaders directly into the conversation with edited excerpts from telephone interviews on their views of leadership for partnerships. Five U.S. school and district leaders from urban, suburban, and semi-rural communities in the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, and West were chosen based on referrals from book contributors and others; while not a scientific sample, they represent a thoughtful mix of perspectives from a variety of contexts. Topics discussed include their vision of partnerships, greatest accomplishments and challenges in promoting partnerships, view of necessary leadership qualities, and recommendations to new administrators.
