Abstract [en]

When we started the International Successful School Principalship Project (ISSPP) in 2001, we were interested in finding answers to the question: What contributes to school principals’ success in leading schools so that students gain the most from their experience of school education? Teams of researchers from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, England, Canada, the United States, Australia and China participated and found a series of answers and arguments as the results from analysing a range of documentary, quantitative and qualitative data from approximately 30 schools. Five years later on, we went back to those schools which were led by the same principals in order to find out whether the success had been sustained and if so, how.

This book reports our findings through country case stories and cross-cutting thematic chapters. First, we report briefly upon findings from the first phase. Following this, we describe the research methods that were used and the challenge of finding common international understandings of success in schools and in school principalship. Finally, we report findings about sustaining success from the second phase of the study.
