Every school adopts an approach to administration but few
schools realise that their approach is just one of five possible
approaches. Some of these approaches
offer very few benefits in terms of higher staff morale or the greater
effectiveness of the way the school is run and yet they have a
self-perpetuating quality which allows them to continue unchallenged year after
Changing the approach to administration does take a little time,
but the benefits can be overwhelming, and the cost very limited.
