Beyond “Teacher Heroes” and “Mint Officers”: Teacher Leadership Development in Complex Contexts. Jonathan Eckert, Wheaton College

Schools are complex organizations requiring teacher leadership development that relies on more than teacher heroes and delegated work.

That model is the lens for a descriptive analysis of three high school case studies in addition to interviews of recognized teacher leaders from across the U.S. with implications for future development.

Using TALIS 2013 data, this research try to measure how formal and informal leaders are involved in different leadership responsibilities, and how the pattern varies from school to school and from country to country.
