This study explored the roles, beliefs and behaviors of three reputationally effective secondary school headteachers in Karachi, Pakistan. It selected one head from each of three types of schools---government, community and independent, assuming that contextual factors will influence the nature of leadership. It particular, it explored the heads roles, task management behavior and conceptions of effective leadership, and observed them enacting their roles in their daily school lives. The study also explored the key stakeholders (e.g., teachers, students, parents and officials) perceptions of an effective headteacher in order to see how they view school leadership.The findings reveal that all three heads beliefs and practices show similarity in a vision of providing an education balanced between Islamic teachings and values and modern, secular content and skills. As managers and leaders, the heads focused on building an environment conducive to better teaching and learning, enabling teacher development, and fostering productive relations within and outside the school. However, they differed in their rationale, understanding, strategies and application of these strategies, due largely to differences in their personal histories, specific beliefs and values, and organizational settings.The heads and key stakeholders images converged in a role of an effective head that I characterize as a Prophetic Professional having a dual role: prophetic in commitment to Islamic values and professional in playing the role of a good school leader in terms of instruction, management, and leadership. The prophetic professional aims to make sure that Islamic education and values are imparted, in conjunction with the modern secular academic knowledge. This dual leadership role derives from broader Islamic ideological and socio-cultural context of Pakistan.The enquiry collected data through qualitative research methods, including semi-structured interviews, discussions, non-participant observation, pre- and post observation discussions, informal conversations and analysis of relevant documents. Data also came from focus group discussions with key stakeholders: teachers, students and parents in each school. In addition, the researcher interviewed selected officials or governors related to each school, exploring their views and expectations of school heads and their effectiveness. File Size: 5MB.

50 and this will not be enough to induce him to do the extra work. The introduction of credit constrained households we study the variant where myopic agents spend their current disposable incomes does not alter the basic result in the case of full aid finance, but does matter for mixed tax-aid regimes, in more complex settings where agent expectations and donor promises on aid diverge, and when governments face borrowing constraints so that the timing of aid delivery matters.
However, the link between the financing of education and its administration places other schools at a disadvantage: they get the benefit of little or none of the governmental funds spent on education — a situation that has been the source of much political dispute, particularly, of course, in France.
