In an ever-changing social, economic, political, and cultural environment, nations struggle to reform and adapt their education systems.
Under these rapidly changing conditions, the expectations for organizations are changing in response. As a result, the need for educational organizations to adopt and implement effective human resource management (HRM) policies and practices is becoming progressively apparent.
This Special Issue aims to gather manuscripts that illustrate the rising issues of administration and leadership at a time when public and private spending on education is under pressure. As a result, educational organizations are expected to perform, even when resources are scarce or overburdened.
Original research articles and reviews are welcome. Manuscripts which will present current issues on educational human resource management, school efficiency, best practice, leadership, and management in education are particularly welcomed, however manuscripts outside of these areas are also welcome for submission if suitably relevant.
We look forward to your contributions.
Dr. Sophia Anastasiou
