This collection explores critical and foundational theory for trust in educational administration and leadership as it influences a broad range of topics, such as ethics, governance, diversity, policy, management, and power. It demonstrates the relevance of this foundation to practical issues and problems internationally, both within the organizational context and extra-organizationally. Contributors from throughout the world focus on the application of trust factors as they affect our understanding of, and practice in, educational organizations. This volume will be of interest to students and faculty of educational administration theory, the policy and politics of education, and educational leadership as well as practitioners and policy makers.
