- This proposal reports a case study of four principals’ leadership approaches to equality of learning opportunities towards inclusion for all students with different special educational needs (SEN). The study was conducted in the Chinese education system in Hong Kong where more SEN students are placed in ordinary public schools. The key questions are: What are the challenges facing the principals for equality of learning opportunity for SEN students in ordinary public schools? How do the principals enact leadership for equal learning opportunity for SEN students? What effects of the principal leadership on the student learning are regarded as school improvement towards inclusion? The findings unveil the principals’ concerns with the effects of leadership practice for whole-school inclusion on all students. Copyright © 2019 AERA.
