Leadership and Policy in Schools aims to provide a high-quality forum for educational researchers, practitioners and policymakers to publish analyses and research about how school leaders and educational policies utilize fiscal, material, and human resources to bring about change in education and effectiveness in schools.

The scope of the journal will encompass studies about leadership and policy in primary and secondary education, as well as in tertiary education, where appropriate. Studies that utilize the school-site as their primary unit of analysis are of particular interest. Such studies will include schools from diverse contexts in both the public and private sectors.
