The terminology used to characterise school organisation has shifted over the past 50 years, as noted in the chapters by Lakomski and Evers and by English and Ehrich. Both chapters appear to point to the growth in importance of leadership at the expense of administration. It should also be noted that, in some contexts, including the UK, management supplanted administration as early as the early 1980s because administration in this context tends to denote routine processes. This is reflected in the gradual expansion of the title of its professional society to the British Educational Leadership, Management and Administration Society (BELMAS), as noted by English and Ehrich; and of its academic journal, Educational Management, Administration and Leadership.
