Abstract [en]

This book provides a unique map of the focus and directions of contemporary research on school leadership since 2000 in 24 countries. Each of these directions has its own particular cultural, educational and policy history. Taken together, the various chapters in the volume provide a rich and varied mosaic of what is currently known and what is yet to be discovered about the roles and practices of principals, and their contributions to the improvement of teaching and the learning and achievement of students. The particular foci and methodological emphases of the research reported illustrate the different phases in the development of educational policies and provision in each country. This collection is an important addition to existing international research that has shown beyond any reasonable doubt that the influence of school principals is second only to that of teachers in their capacity to impact students’ progress and achievement and to promote equity and social justice.

Abstract: By investigating the ethical perspectives of school principals in five different countries and verifying the cultural invariance of the Ethical Leadership Questionnaire (ELQ), this paper addresses the need to develop cross-cultural research instruments to better understand the work of school leaders in different contexts. In order to verify the invariance of the ELQ according to culture, school leaders from Canada (n=668), Israel (n=117), Malta (n=130), Sweden (n=260), and Turkey (n=460) completed the ELQ. A measurement invariance analysis was then conducted using the multiple indicators multiple causes (MIMIC) approach, followed by a verification of item translation and equivalence of meaning. Invariance analyses demonstrated some differences in factor loadings (i.e. the regression coefficients indicating the strength of the relation between the items and the constructs they are assumed to measure). Results showed that the ELQ was culturally invariant, and that only one item out of 23 needed to be modified.

Abstract [sv]

Forskning visar att förskolechefer och rektorer är viktiga för verksamhetens välbefinnande och framgång. Deras ledningsuppgift handlar om att vårda och ta till vara lärarnas engagemang, vara lyhörd för och värna elevernas rätt till en god utbildning och samtidigt hävda skolans demokratiska uppdrag och dess kunskapsuppdrag. Det är enkelt sagt, men svårare att genomföra så att det når barngrupper och klassrum.

Att leda mot skolans mål belyser ett dynamiskt tvärvetenskapligt kunskapsområde - utbildningsledning. De olika kapitlen anknyter till rektorsprogrammets kunskapsområden och behandlar förskolans och skolans legala förutsättningar, målstyrning och utbildningsledarskap. Bokens första del tar sin utgångspunkt i skolans kontext och övergripande skeenden. Del två belyser ledarskapsfrågor. I bokens avslutande del ger författarna olika ledarperspektiv på skolans praktik.

I denna andra upplaga har det tillkommit fyra helt nya kapitel fördelade mellan antologins temaområden. De flesta av bokens övriga kapitel är omarbetade och uppdaterade med aktuell forskning.

Olof Johansson är professor i statsvetenskap, Umeå universitet, och leder Centrum för skolledarutveckling. Lars Svedberg är docent och legitimerad psykolog och arbetar vid Karlstads universitet. Bokens övriga författare är rektorsutbildare från olika utbildningsorter.

Abstract [en]

This thematic chapter analyses both similarities and differences between the political cultures of the participating Nordic countries. It has been demonstrated that a country’s specific political culture has a great impact on the way its schooling system is organised. This view was centred on national cultures. In the Nordic countries, with their traditions of decentralised systems, many of the most important decision are taken by the municipal systems. Therefore this chapter seeks to apply the concepts of national political culture to the local municipal level. The chapter aims to explore the differences between the Nordic countries’ schooling systems through the lens of how different political cultures influence the organisation of the national school systems and draw them in different directions.
