    This presentation will from a Translation Theory (Wæraas & Nielsen, 2016) approach, investigate an ongoing trend to improve the performance of pupils at elementary schools in Denmark trough educational leadership. Hence, the aim of the presentation is to trace understandings of educational leadership as the key and main answer to political requirements on efficient school improvement. The emergence of educational leadership seems to be a result of how the Danish school system in recent years has earned disappointing PISA-results (PISA, 2000-2012) on school teaching and learning. Other investigations on the Danish school system results and ranking have been equally disappointing (TALIS, 2008, EVA, 2012). Among the initiatives to ensure better results for Danish pupils in the future, educational leadership has of late become the vogue (Andersen, 2011; Pors, 2014; Åkerstrøm Andersen & Pors, 2014). According to the latest PISA results (PISA, 2015), it has been worth the effort. This presentation traces how new understandings of educational leadership are coming into existence and constructed through networks because of demands for evidence based practice. It is a part of my PhD project, and includes my preliminary findings. My findings are, on the one hand based on a review of national and international literature on educational leadership and on the other hand based on my investigation into the demand claim for better results and student-centered leadership in Denmark.
