  • Building a Professional Learning Community: A Way of Teacher Participation
           in Mexican Public Elementary Schools

    • Authors: Manuel Flores Fahara, Ma. Guadalupe Rodríguez Bulnes, Magda García Quintanilla
      Pages: 113 - 142
      Abstract: The professional learning communities and communities of practice approaches in the arena of education appear to hold considerable promise for sustainable school improvement.   These approaches flow from the assumption that teacher´s collaboration is central to transform a school into a learning organization. They also provide opportunities for teachers’ professional development.  The literature shows that schools are frequently called upon to improve by developing high levels of teacher collaboration. In this study we describe how the process of building a professional learning community took place in two urban public elementary schools located in Monterrey, Mexico in which seven teachers participated, from which three were novices and four experts. Through this study, we found that teachers visualized as possible the ability to generate a space where they could reflect and solve problems while they shared experiences from their teaching practices. This space of reflection also allowed them to create projects and develop a sense of community when they had more time available since the schools were usually involved in many projects.

  • Liderazgo educativo en México

    • Authors: Isabel Parés
      Pages: 143 - 172
      Abstract: El liderazgo educativo en México es una tema que estuvo olvidado, en cuanto a su estructura formal y desarrollo profesional, por muchas décadas y que finalmente, empieza a cobrar relevancia dentro del contexto de la última Reforma Educativa promulgada en febrero 2013 y que poco a poco, se ha ido implementando, bajo un clima contradictorio entre quienes la apoyan y algunos opositores que han presionado con acciones sociales pacíficas y no pacíficas, para que el gobierno suavice y/o erradique algunas de las medidas de la Reforma Educativa. En concreto, la función directiva vista desde la perspectiva de la Secretaría de Educación Pública, está vinculada al concepto de Gestión Escolar, pues es visto como un supervisor y administrador “moderno” de la educación. Sin embargo, México se encuentra en un proceso de profesionalización de la función directiva, con la finalidad de que directivos y supervisores escolares, sean agentes del cambio y la mejora de la calidad educativa del país.

  • The Micropolitics of School Principals’ Decision Making in Nigeria:
           Principals’ Perspective

    • Authors: Shina Olayiwola, Kingsley Alabi
      Pages: 173 - 191
      Abstract: This study depicted a micropolitical analysis of school principals’ decision making as regards the influence of formal and informal groups on school administrative processes from the point of view of principals. It was based on descriptive survey study of all 24 public secondary schools within Ile-Ife community, Osun State, Nigeria, out of which a sample of 10 schools was purposively selected. The instrument for data collection was an open-ended questionnaire titled “The micropolitics of school principals’ decision making in Nigeria: Principals’ perspective”. The results showed that decisions’ themes focused on improving quality of teachers and physical facilities in schools. The formal groups responsible for these decisions were principals, teachers, government officials, and parents. The informal groups were watchmen or night guards, non-governmental organizations, mass media agencies, students, and landlords. The study concluded that a complex micropolitical interaction existed in the decision-making processes of school principals due to formal and informal groups’ participation, a consequent of School-Based Management Committee (SBMC) system.
