Site-Based Management's Impact Upon Inspector's Role Perceptions.


    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The present study was designed to investigate the way the emergence of site-based management (SBM) in Israel affected the roles of the general school supervisor as perceived by them and by school principals. Our study, based on interviews, conducted among 20 SBM school principals and 8 SBM supervisors, revealed that although the intention of the Ministry of Education was to delegate a greater part of supervisory roles to school principals, the implementation of this policy remained difficult for a variety of reasons including teacher union objections, senior supervisors who refused to be separated from their traditional roles and the vagueness of the Ministry of Education policy. Principals’ perceptions about the changes in supervisory roles included the belief that supervisors were required to delegate part of their roles to the principals while they lacked the means to accomplish it. They believe that supervisors either continued to carry out their traditional roles or only carried out the easy parts of their roles and minimised their involvement at schools.
