chapter  4
Reflections on the Case Study and Conclusions
Pages 19

This chapter is split into two sections of unequal length. The first section, reflections on the case study, opens with Ron’s response to the study. Thereafter I present my observations on five topics which the case study touches upon: deputy heads, schools as settings for heads’ work, micropolitics, phases of headship, and gender. In the second section I present the main conclusions I draw from the case study and briefly discuss them.
