Thomas J. S. ” The Jossey-Bass, reader on educational leadership, pp. 75–92. 37 LI JIANPING 5. LEADING CHANGE IN SCHOOL CULTURE INTRODUCTION It is my belief that nothing is more important about a school than its culture. In this paper, I will demonstrate that no one occupies a more influential position from which to influence a school’s culture than its principal. Every successful school leader knows that culture influences all aspects of the school’s operations. As a school leader, one needs to know: What is the culture of the school now?

Every school has a unique culture, just like every person has a different character. Sometimes it is very easy to know what the school culture is by watching the behaviours of the teachers and students. I have visited many schools in China; having had the opportunity to walk around some schools, I found most teachers were friendly. They would greet, smile and would help visitors with any problems. The students in the schools are polite and friendly, too. Everything seems in order. On the other hand, while visiting other schools, I found the teachers to be cold and the students unfriendly.

We all know the figures; knowledge doubles every three years; computer technology changes in every year, even every month. When business leaders employ students, they also search for candidates who have the following skills and abilities: teamwork, problem solving, interpersonal and intercultural skills, oral communication, listening, personal development, creative thinking, reading and writing. Every one of these skills requires continued lifelong learning. If the first major purpose of school is to create and provide a culture hospitable to human learning, the second major purpose of school is to make it likely that students and educators will become and remain lifelong learners.
