Rationale for inclusion in the Taxonomy

The efficient operations and functioning of school support systems is a core aspect of leadership – i.e. administration and management of organizations and institutions. Since schools do not work independently or in a vacuum and are regulated and governed by other formal organizations and institutions, understanding how these organizations work, how they can be led and improved are core aspects of K-12 educational leadership.
