Leading the Small Rural Primary School: The Challenges of Headship
Wilson, Eve; Brundrett, Mark
Education 3-13, v33 n3 p44-48 Oct 2005
This paper is intended to describe the roles and responsibilities of the small school head and is based on the personal experiences of a serving headteacher. It seems an accepted element of academic discourse that recent governmental initiatives have impacted on the leadership and management of educational institutions in such a way that they have offered both opportunities and challenges for school leaders. It is the central contention of this paper that the impact of these opportunities and challenges has nowhere been greater than in the leading of small schools.
