Launching a cross-cultural study of leadership in Round Square Schools

Posted: 05 February 2020

This week we are excited to get started on our research project into Leadership in Round Square Schools with Dr Ewan Wright, Assistant Professor of the Department of Education Policy and Leadership within the Faculty of Education and Human Development at The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) and supported by Professor Moosung Lee, Dr Darren Bryant and Professor Allan Walker.

Already today, one team of student and teacher Research Ambassadors from Round Square schools across the world have convened online with the University Research team to plan work on the project, and another call will take place later today. Over the next few weeks our Ambassadors will test, and contribute to the design and development of, the online surveys that students and teachers from more than 200 Round Square schools in 50 countries will ultimately be invited to complete.  This international research project aims to identify how young people conceptualise and engage with leadership across cross-cultural contexts worldwide, and will investigate their experiences and seek to identify and codify good practice that can be replicated in a variety of educational contexts.

Congratulations and thank you to our Research Ambassador Schools, who successfully applied to join the research team for this project. They are:
