Abstract [en]

Recently, the building of personal, interpersonal and organisational capacity through the restructuring of schools as learning organisations and professional learning communities have been identified as promising developments in school-based administrative theory (Louis et al. 1996; Senge 2000; Mitchell and Sackney 2000). Yet, capacity-building theories are complex and require administrators to be conversant with new approaches to leadership, change theory, instruction and professional development, whilst maintaining that which is already effective within schools (Silins et al. 2002). The purpose of this chapter is to explore the capacity-building strategies used by principals and headteachers to improve and sustain improvements in student achievement in US, British and Swedish contexts.
