Strengthening School Leadership Towards Improving School Resiliency
School leaders are central to this development research. The central research problem is the need to strengthen the quality of school leadership as a means of improving education quality in challenging school contexts. This exploratory multi-country research adopted a realistic evaluation framework to explore the use of a specific continuous improvement approach—improvement science (IS)—with groups of school leaders in Chile, Kenya and the Philippines. The multidisciplinary research team, comprising international researchers from education, leadership, and international development, collaborated with in-country partners to undertake the work in the highly fluid and dynamic environments of the pandemic.
