A Centre for Research in Educational Leadership and Management (CRELM) seminar

Presented by Celina Torres-Arcadia, visiting scholar with CRELM

The purpose of this presentation is to share the evolution of a Mexican research network created by the ISSPP initiative (International Successful School Principals Project). The RIGE (the acronym for Research Network In Educational Management in Spanish) has been working since 2008, documenting 24 cases of successful principals in Mexico and 18 cases of principals of schools which under-form (still In progress).  Some main findings of the RIGE will be presented: The profile of the successful school principal in Mexico; The model of competencies of the successful school principal and some preliminary findings about principals of schools which underperform. Finally, there will be a reflection about the relevance of this kind of initiative for developing countries.

Refreshments  will be available.
