ISSN: 0957-8234

Article publication date: 1 March 1992


Draws on the analyses presented in the other articles in the Journal of Educational Administration Vol. 30 No. 3 to identify emergent themes concerning the evolving role of the principal in several countries. Focuses especially on the manner in which the policy context of educational organizations is leading to a decentralization of management and the resulting impact on the administrative practice of principals. Finally, suggests some of the implications of these changes for the preparation and development of principals.
