Project Details


The study analyzes which school factors, personal factors and environmental factors are related to the role and well-being of the principals in primary schools. The differences in well-being according to the profile of the principals, their leadership skills and their decision-making styles will be examined as well. School culture and well-being of teachers will be related to the principals' well-being and role. Based on semi-structural interviews and surveys with principals and teachers in 56 elementary schools, the well-being and role of principals on the one hand and the well-being of teachers on the other hand will be developed.
