Educational leadership in pre-school: A leadership in transition
2006 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
This paper aims at discussing a research plan on educational leadership for educated teacher in pre-schools and is produced in the beginning of a doctoral project. Early childhood education and care in Sweden has been extended and reformed by the government as a part of the Swedish family welfare policy. The responsibility now lies within the Ministry of education and Science, and the supervisory responsibility with the National Agency for education. Pre-school (1-6) in Sweden are now a part of the educational system and has its own Curriculum.
The School Act in 1998 has decentralized the responsibility to the municipalities, and thereby also the organization of the educational leadership. This change of the educational leadership for pre-school from a leadership located within the pre-school to a educational leader for a school district, is the initial ground for this research-interest. How does this change affect the educational leadership for pre-school teachers?
This paper will account for what the regulatory documents and literature about educational leadership say about the importance of educative leadership.
