What does it mean to be a principal? A policy researcher’s perspective on the last 30 years in Aotearoa New Zealand

Introduction School leadership practices are pivotal to the wellbeing and effectiveness of individual schools. School leadership also provides a lens to understand the wellbeing, effectiveness and equity of a schooling system. What do we ask of our school leaders, particularly our principals? How do we develop and support principals so that they can carry out this increasingly complex role well? How do we ensure that every school has a good principal?

Multiple hues: New Zealand school leaders’ perceptions of social justice

Social justice is a fluid and contested notion. In the absence of a nationally accepted definition of, and commitment to, social justice, New Zealand school leaders and their communities must interpret the nature and substance of this phenomenon. This article examines the perspectives of eight secondary principals who participated in the International School Leadership Development Network’s (ISLDN) study on leadership for social justice. Whilst not explicitly theorized as such

Who will lead? Principal succession in New Zealand’s faith-based integrated schools

One of the most challenging tasks for any school’s board of trustees is leading the process to employ a new principal when a principal change is impending. The importance of this task cannot be underestimated as there is an integral relationship between school leadership and student achievement.

A New Zealand case study: What is happening to lead changes to effective co-teaching in flexible learning spaces?

De-privatising teaching and working collaboratively with fellow teachers in purposively designed school buildings requires effective leadership. The principal is situated amongst those closely affiliated to their school such as teachers, parents and students, and yet they need to work alongside the wider school community, the school’s governing Board of Trustee members and national educational policy-makers and administrators. This article uses a single case study of a school leadership
