Παπαοικονόμου, Δήμητρα/ Papaoikonomou, Dimitra

The present paper attempts an overview on the topic of the School Principal both as a permanent and as a fixed-term position. Moreover, since the topic has been approached from a theoretical as well as an empirical point of view, the opinions of educators from Primary and Secondary Education are also being discussed. The theoretical part provides a discussion on the complex and multidimensional role of the School Principal and presenting the relevant duties and responsibilities. In addition, this section includes an overview of the relevant Legislative Framework in Greece during the last three decades, especially regarding the methods and election criteria, as well as the Principal term’s length. Further discussion is provided on the permanent and fixed-duration term as a Principal. More specifically, the benefits of a permanent or fixed-duration term on various school issues are presented. Finally, we provide a thorough overview of the relevant Greek and English scientific literature on the topic along with selected remarks on the theoretical discussion. The theoretical part of the paper concludes with the presentation of three key studies concerning the topic of a permanent School Principal term. The empirical part of this study presents our research on the permanent vs. fixed-duration term of the School Principal. Our sample consists of 120 Principals and teachers in the Primary and Secondary Education and our data collection method consisted of questionnaires. Finally, the paper concludes with an analysis of the results using graphs and a discussion of the possible conclusions
