School leadership and management

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters


Any attempt to cast a net across a large and diverse area, such as the Asia-Pacific region, is fraught with pitfalls. The societies which comprise the region differ tremendously both within and between national boundaries. They differ in terms of long-standing cultural values and beliefs, social expectations, educational structures, political governance and ideologies and stages of economic development, to name but some. Any attempt to outline and comment comprehensively on the state of, in this case, school leadership and management in the region, risks painting a sketchy and generalised picture at best.
