Abstract:A distributed perspective offers a new and important theoretical lens through which leadership practice in schools can be reconfigured and re-conceptualized. However, contemporary discourse about distributed leadership theory remains a way of analysing rather than describing leadership practice. While the research suggests that distributed forms of leadership can assist capacity-building within schools, further work is needed to investigate the nature of the relationship between distributed leadership and improved school/student outcomes.
