The 21st Century School Leader: Leading Schools in Today’s World by Dr. Denver J. Fowler
In this episode of the We Love Schools podcast, host Carole Dorn-Bell speaks with Dr. Denver J. Fowler, author of the forthcoming book The 21st Century School Leader: Leading Schools in Today’s World. Dr. Fowler is an Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, Graduate and Professional Studies in Education at California State University, Sacramento. Carole and Dr. Fowler discuss the book, how it came about, and what he hopes people take away from it.
Carole notes the book has endorsements some big names in education. Dr. Fowler says he sees the book as a roadmap for practitioners and notes that it includes many of the things he wishes he had known as a first-year school leader in Ohio.
“What I really aimed to do was write a book that’s innovative in how we lead schools,” he says. “One thing that became blatantly apparent was that we’re leading schools a lot like we led schools when my parents were in school.”
Education leaders should shift gears to leading schools for the 21st century.
The book is focused on Pre-K through 12th Grade and can be a source for colleges and universities in preparing future leaders in education.
Chapter titles include: Leading Schools in Today’s World, Social Media for Administrators and Teachers, and The Importance of Being a Lifelong Learner.
The book will be available on Amazon, at Barnes & Noble, and essentially anywhere books are sold.
The 21st Century School Leader: Leading Schools in Today’s World is Dr. Fowler’s first book, although he is working on several more.
