The study reported in this thesis aimed to develop an understanding of leadership of madrassa primary schooling in Indonesia. The results relate to first the historical background to the government of Indonesia developing highly centralised governance structures eventuating in tightly controlled education management that weakened and neglected madrassa primary school leadership. Secondly, at a time of decentralised education the government in recent years has given more attention to madrassa education but, because it comes under the Ministry of Religious Affairs, it is not decentralised. Thirdly, current concerns of leaders of madrassas are 'teachers', 'infrastructure', and 'management'. Particular issues are related to 'students', 'finance' and 'staffing'.
