Specifically, the importance of leadership as a central feature of reform is established, and specific examples are given regarding modelling, risk management, reculturing, restructuring and exclusion. A case study of the National College is presented in order to illuminate the political, cultural, economic and symbolic investment in the leadership of schools game.
