Research into the Impact of School Leadership on Pupil Outcomes: Policy and Research Contexts
Day, Christopher; Sammons, Pam; Hopkins, David; Leithwood, Kenneth; Kington, Alison
School Leadership & Management, v28 n1 p5-25 Feb 2008
This paper extends the introduction to the authors' study of successful school leadership and how it influences pupil outcomes begun in the Editorial introduction. Critical to an appreciation especially of the external validity of their results is an understanding of the policy context in which the English leaders in their study found themselves; this is a policy context dominated by concerns for external accountability and increases in the academic performance of pupils. In addition to describing this context, the paper summarises the conceptual and methodological framework that guided the early stage of their research and outlines their mixed-methods research design.
