Abstract

The study aimed to develop understanding of primary school leadership in Indonesia. The focus was on the historical background, recent developments, and current concerns of primary school leaders in demographically and geographically challenging circumstances where school-based management was an official policy. The research was guided by interpretivism and was qualitative in nature. The results suggest that from 1945 to 1998, primary school leadership was neglected because of a highly centralised education system. Important developments have occurred, however, since 1999 as education was decentralised. The results also indicate that primary school leaders encounter concerns relating to 'people', 'management' and
'infrastructure'.
