Written specifically for those studying for an academic qualification at masters level in educational management, it provides self-study material and links to other key texts in the field.

The authors deal with the links between finance, resources and stakeholders in the context of school and college self-management. Examples are drawn from international settings as well as from the United Kingdom. Building on an examination of theoretical perspectives, practical considerations and applications are examined in a format, which encourages the reader to explore the context of their own educational institution.
