Leadership Tensions and Dilemmas
Edmunds, Bill; Mulford, Bill; Kendall, Diana; Kendall, Lawrie
International Electronic Journal for Leadership in Learning, v12 n17 2008
Results from the Tasmanian Successful School Principal Project (SSPP) survey concur with the four major leadership tensions and dilemmas identified in a background literature review. These tensions and dilemmas relate to internal/external control, ethic of care/responsibility, and an emphasis on professional/personal as well as leadership/management. The results also offer new insights. These insights include differences in the effects of the tensions and dilemmas based on principal qualifications, experience and gender, school size, socio-economic status (SES) and organisational capacity, and student social and literacy/numeracy success adjusted for school SES. (Contains 4 charts and 9 tables.)
