Title Leadership for Learning - A Study of How Teachers Perceive Their Professional Role; Ledarskap för lärande - en studie av lärares syn på sin yrkesroll

English abstract
This study aims at looking deeper into school-based leadership and teacher leadership in particular. The starting point of any line of thought is to be found in the claim that there is a positive correlation between teacher leadership and student academic performance. When searching the curriculum for the non-compulsory school system in Sweden, Lpf94,for its position on school-based leadership, the only item that is found on the subject refers to principal leadership. I therefore chose to perform interviews with a number of high-school teachers, to attain a complementary image of how they perceive that they, as teachers, practice leadership on a daily basis. The results show that they all feel that their professional role entails a leader role, but the analysis shows that how they practice leadership can be recognized in slightly different ways.
