Abstract [en]

This study explores the learning of a delegation of 41 Swedish principals during their visit to schools in Texas. Particularly, the study explores the similarities and differences in both educational systems as well as different characteristics in principal leadership. The exchange focused on the various questions Swedish principals sought to have answered during their visit and their first impressions of US schools. The observation and analysis of principals' perceptions was developed in this study using a phenomenological approach, sensitive to collaborative cultures and international inquiry. The findings present aspects of US and Sweden education and elements principals in Sweden saw as important to import to their country, as well what they saw important to export to the US in order to enhance school improvement.
