Abstract

Arguably, given the significance of what they do, all schools need to be secure as institutions in every aspect of their work. However, what constitutes an institution and the activities that make it legitimate as such are problematic. Those responsible for the daily conduct of a school and making sure a school is a legitimate institution therefore face considerable challenges. This roundtable will focus on those very issues: The problematic nature of schools as institutions, and the implications for school head teachers and principals.
