Understanding education from diverse perspectives such as economics, management, sociology, psychology, history,anthropology, philosophy etc inform the disciplinary knowledge basis of education. Understanding how schools and other entities in the K-12 education system operate and function as organizations, their characteristics and how these can be improved form core aspects of educational leadership. Much of the focus in educational leadership has been to examine ways in which formal and informal organisations in the K-12 space can be improved such that they are more effective in bringing about equitable outcomes for schools and students.
