The Mexican High School Principal: The Impact of the National and Local Culture
Cisneros-Cohernour, Edith J.; Merchant, Betty M.
Journal of School Leadership, v15 n2 p215-231 Mar 2005
In view of the increasingly global nature of the societies in which we live, it is important that we understand the ways in which national culture can impact the role of educational leaders. The exploratory study reported in this article was designed to contribute to our understanding of the relationship between culture and leadership behavior by focusing on the working lives of two male and two female principals in four public Mexican high schools in the southeast of Mexico. The study was part of an international study that focused on the impact of national and local culture in the principalship. (Contains 1 table and 1 footnote.)
