Abstract

One of the greatest challenges for 21st century school is to rethinking school culture for human diversity. Among the factors contributing to the ethos of the inclusive school, most specialists emphasise the importance of leadership, of the managerial team that both through conception and through its own behaviour promotes cooperation, human diversity, tolerance, open mind-set and help offering. The purpose of this research was to identify the factors of the leadership, which are involved in promoting a culture of inclusion. The research in question was embedded in a constructivist–interpretivist paradigm. The study included the analysis of school culture and interviews with school managers and teachers. The institutional analysis of schools addressed the physical/material aspects of the school and the social dimension (of human resources). One of the main conclusions of the research is that the leader and his team have a decisive role to play in promoting values of diversity.
