Abstract

This chapter examines the ways a creative and innovative principal in a Bangladeshi secondary school developed his teachers as leaders. The leadership practices that have developed in this school are significant because they offer a model of shared responsibility for engagement with students and community in the Bangladeshi context where authoritarian leadership is still the more common practice and the norm. This case study uses a qualitative approach that draws primarily on the principal’s perceptions and experiences. It offers a contribution to educational change that is drawn from working within a local context rather than simply based on outside, and possibly alien, international models.
