The other focuses on the changing role of school leaders as the organizational contexts for schools become more complex. The former co-editor of Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, Professor Goldring is coauthor with Claire Smrekar of Magnet Schools in Urban Districts: What's Our Choice (1999), and with Sharon Rallis of Principals of Dynamic Schools (2000).
