Aurora Bernardo, Maria; van der Nest, Theo; Smith, Lyn – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2019
The dual State-Catholic education model that secured the existence of many Catholic schools, especially after the Second Vatican Council, has made the role of principals more complex as they endeavour to balance their religious and educational leadership responsibilities.
