Turnaround, Transformational, or Transactional Leadership: An Ethical Dilemma in School Reform

Mette, I.M & Scribner, J.P. (2014). Turnaround, Transformational, or Transactional Leadership: An Ethical Dilemma in School Reform. Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, 17 (4): 3-18.

Abstract: This case was written for school leaders, specifically building-level principals and central office administrators attempting to implement school turnaround reform efforts. Often, leaders who embark on this type of organizational change work in intense environments that produce high levels of pressure to demonstrate improvement in student achievement. Educators studying this case should examine the impact on ethical leadership when implementing rapid reform efforts, particularly the pressure on school leaders at the district and building levels to employ a transactional rather than transformational approach to leadership as they respond to the pressures of turnaround school policy.
