This book explores the efficacy of innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to educational leadership preparation implemented at universities across the United States that serve K-12 populations in urban, rural, and suburban contexts. This collection of chapters draws from seminal and contemporary literature on preparation programs, the Carnegie Project for Education Doctorate. It demonstrates how theory and research play a pivotal role in the creation of new doctoral programs in educational leadership. The book focuses on trends, issues, challenges, and possibilities that weave commonalities and differentiate structures among seven professional doctorate programs in educational leadership (Ed.D.).
