Improving the calibre of school leadership in South Africa Improving the calibre of school leadership in South Africa HOT

This policy brief summarises evidence from two quantitative studies by the author on the labour market for school principals in South Africa.1 In this brief I describe four features of this market: aging and retirement, long tenure, unequal distribution in terms of qualifications and experience, and unreliable indicators of quality. I explain how an understanding of these features can inform and support policy for school principals.
