Abstract

The paper examines in detail successive stages in a process of transformation of the community orientation of a Greek Primary school characterised in the past by communal tensions and suspicions. In particular we examine the impact of an enlightened school leadership not only in transformaing what happens within the school but in the process of transforming the relationship of the school with the local communities.

Item Type: Article
Additional Information: This paper grew out of a critical engagement with a school facing a crisis in its relationship with two communities living adjacent to each other. while discrimination against Roma children intensified around Europe, this case study offers an insight into an all too rare instance of positive inclusion being initiated and practiced.
Controlled Keywords: Inclusion, democratic governance, Primary school
