Rintoul, Heather; Bishop, Pam – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2019
For teachers seeking formal school leadership roles the key choices have been either the vice- principalship or the principalship.

Norberg, Katarina – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2019
In the mid-1970s, a systematic national principal training programme was introduced in Sweden. The aim was to guarantee better-equipped principals in their mission to lead and develop schools in accordance with national steering documents. Since then, the programme has been subjected to changes, but its focus has remained the same. The three-year…

Heffernan, Amanda – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2019
This paper advances an alternative leadership metaphor of 'punk rock leadership'. I work through the usefulness of a metaphor of punk rock leadership as a way of exploring one principal's vision of leadership and his efforts to work outside of system expectations in his quest to achieve the school's goals. In doing so, I contribute to our wider…

MacDonald, Katrina – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2019
Educational leadership research has a long history of the use of metaphor as a descriptive and analytical tool. In this paper, I explore the value of metaphorical analysis using tropes from the story of "Robinson Crusoe" as a way to think with and through the data generated in a case study examining how social justice may be understood…

Thomson, Pat – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2019
Busy leaders need time to reflect and renew. They need to consider the particularities of their school and the ways in which they can work with others in the school community to address pressing issues, as well as to make future plans. The metaphor of the studio offers some helpful avenues for thinking how this reflection might occur. Artists use…

Netolicky, Deborah M. – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2019
Moving away from the study of the principal as the central leader figure in schools, this article argues for an alternative narrative for school leadership. It draws on empirical data from a doctoral study to propose a new way of thinking about the school leader through the unusual metaphor of the Cheshire Cat. Examining the stories of 11 school…

Maguire, Meg; Braun, Annette – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2019
This paper explores how doing headship may be considered as a form of policy narration. A key role of the headteacher as policy narrator is to tell/sell a story about their school to themselves, their staff and the outside world of parents, inspectors and other stakeholders. The accounts they construct will depend to some extent on their…

Ezzani, Miriam D.; King, Kelley M. – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
While case studies have documented how teachers can either ameliorate or exacerbate situations of ignorance or hate in the classroom toward Muslim students, the role of educational leaders in U.S. public schools remains negligible. In response, this paper aims to develop the knowledge base of educational leadership as it pertains to the jihad or…

Brooks, Melanie C.; Mutohar, Agus – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
It is urgent that education scholars explore how Islamic values shape (and are shaped by) Muslim school leader beliefs, given the heightened anti-Muslim sentiment present in western contexts. Yet, there is a lack of scholarship on non-western approaches to leading schools. To address this gap, we drew from extant Islamic and educational leadership…
