The Changing Role of the Primary School Head: Reflections from the Front Line.
Jones, Norah
Educational Management & Administration, v27 n4 p441-51 Fall 1999

This article explores headteachers' perceptions of change resulting from their career paths, imposed legislation, and relations with key stakeholders. Many changes are contradictory and generate paradoxes. Heads manage, but are more than managers. (MLH)
