Summary
"This book puts 'real life' back into the literature on school principalship. Through a life-history approach, it portrays daily life in schools as a much more messy, contested and precarious existence, where principals struggle with passionate commitment to find continuity amongst frequently changing and often conflicting policy initiatives." "The book draws on comprehensive in-depth interview data with new, experienced and veteran principals in Denmark, England, Ireland and Norway. Their life stories illustrate the struggles involved in the ongoing negotiation of identities through unprecedented change." "This is essential reading for principals and their professional bodies, academics and researchers, and school leaders on leadership courses internationally."--BOOK JACKET
