Schooldirecties staan behoorlijk onder druk. Het is een van de niet onverwachte inzichten uit een nieuwe OESO Education Indicators in Focus. De belangrijkste inzichten:
- School heads in public institutions are required to work 7-8 hours per day on average across OECD countries. In two-thirds of these countries, they are also required to work during students’ school holidays.
- On top of their leadership and managerial role, in 27 OECD and partner countries and economies, school heads are required to take on additional tasks and responsibilities as specified in official documents.
- On average across OECD countries in 2019, the actual earnings of lower secondary school heads were 59% higher than those of lower secondary teachers and 38% higher than those of tertiary-educated workers. However, more than half of lower secondary school heads in OECD countries are not satisfied with their salaries.
