The central purpose of this book is to consider the concepts and principles of the important areas of educational leadership signalled by Nelson Mandela. The aim is to develop improved understanding and practice of the management of external relations and resources in schools. The text is on theory and research and uses South African case examples and activities to encourage reflection and personal development. It is aimed particularly, but not exclusively, at those who lead and manage in schools or support them in a professional role. The authors are experts in the field of educational leadership and management.



The Role ad Responsibility of School Governors

There has been a major shift to self-governance for schools in many countries during the past two decades and, despite considerable diversity in the forms adopted, this is generally underpinned by notions of democracy and school effectiveness. Power is typically devolved to school governing bodies (SGBs), while operational management is the responsibility of the principal (Bush and Gamage, 2001; Bush and Heystek, 2003).
