Powerful yet Power-less Principal
After spending more than a decade in school set up, I have understood that Principals /School Leaders are being hired by management for overall school development so as to make their school one of the best choices for the parents in the vicinity.
- School Owners : Objective for them is to maximize revenue. Majority of them are” Business Oriented”
- Principals: Objective for them is overall development of school “Development Oriented”
- How one can think of good results when objective of management & Principal is different?
Management makes a strategy keeping in mind their business expectations. It fails at implementation level in schools, as that’s not Principal’s forte.
