School Heads in the European Union.
EURYDICE European Unit, Brussels (Belgium).
This report was a working document for a EURYDICE Network seminar held in Paris on June 29, 1995. The document compares the status and responsibilities of school heads in the education systems of the European Union and the European Free Trade Association/European Economic Area (EFTA/EEA) countries. The term "school head" was chosen to designate any person in charge of a school, since many diverse terms are used to describe this individual in various countries. Information has been divided into 15 broad categories as concerns the recruitment procedures, qualifications, and responsibilities of school heads. The report covers all of compulsory education and upper secondary education. In addition to the explanation of the various duties expected of the school head, individual country reports provide a fuller description of the specifics in each nation. Numerous charts, graphs and maps accompany the text. (EH)
