Bridging Theory and Practice in Headship Preparation: Interpreting Experience and Challenging Assumptions
Crawford, Megan; Cowie, Michael
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v40 n2 p175-187 Mar 2012
This article draws on research undertaken in Scotland as part of an International Study of Principal Preparation (ISPP). The study is designed to address the question "How useful are principal preparation programmes to novice headteachers?" Drawing on the research data from Scotland, the authors examine how novice headteachers navigate the complex area of practice by integrating personal and professional knowledge over time. They also identify key questions for future study.
