    While the sentiments of distributed leadership outlined above seem positive, the conception is not without issues and concerns. Some of these are philosophical or theoretical, some are practical and some are related to how it is interpreted and the ways it is taken up and used.

Specifically, in their study, they found that leading practices developed from ongoing programmes of professional learning that focused not only on student l...

    Notwithstanding the points made above, about the apparent benefits of instructional leadership, there have been some issues and concerns expressed.
