Views of Future and Current Teachers on the Effectiveness of Primary School Leadership: Evidence from Greece
Saitis, Christos; Menon, Maria Eliophotou
Leadership and Policy in Schools, v3 n2 p135-157 Jun 2004
The paper examines the perceptions of future and current primary school teachers in Greece regarding the effectiveness of their school leaders. Quantitative and qualitative data were collected through questionnaires completed by 126 future and 94 current teachers. According to the findings, future teachers were less positive than their current counterparts in their assessment of school leadership. Several future teachers expected their future leaders to be overly controlling and authoritarian. Current teachers, on the other hand, were more concerned about the appointment of individuals to leadership posts with no prior managerial training. The paper discusses the implications of the findings for educational policy, focusing on the need for changes in the professional preparation of both teachers and school leaders. (Contains 1 table and 3 footnotes.)
