Neo-Confucianism Is a Philosophy Which Was Born TEST1 Capstone Project

Excerpt from Capstone Project :

leader within the educational sector, it is critical that that qualities of good leadership be reflected upon the entire course of ones career.The management and leadership of academic institution is in deed a challenge that often results in poor performance in our contemporary schools (Schmoker,2001). In this paper, we present an elaborate reflection of my views on educational leadership principles that I have explored in the context of your MAED program and my career, and offer a summary of how my development as a professional educator has informed my practice that led to completion of the Capstone Project and my overall degree program.

Educational leadership principles

The very first principle of quality leadership practice is the evidence of candidate learning. This means that all the educational programs must provide enough evidence that the candidates have indeed learned and comprehended the educational curriculum.In order to do this, it was necessary for me to have an excellent professional knowledge. This knowledge is what allowed me to understand the basics of organizational theory and development, school finance, instructional supervision, human resource management, educational supervision, school law, educational policy as well as data analysis and interpretation.In addition to these, it has been necessary for me to cultivate an etical and yet productive school culture, effective instructional techniques/programs, a safe and excellent learning environment, is differentiated instructions for diverse learners, a profitable parent-community-school collaboration as well as the ability to mobilize the school resources in meeting its needs.


Overall, I learnt that the application of transformational leadership skills is highly beneficial for efficiency improvement in schools (Leithwood & Jantzi,2005).
