by Hersey, Maria, Ph.D., Florida Atlantic University, 2012, 177; 3520013
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative study was to investigate the development of global-mindedness (GM) in the leadership of primary schools offering international educational programs around the world with an emphasis on the need for school leaders that understand and support the development of a critical, global perspective of education. Reported findings identified the presence of the five dimensions of global-mindedness as well as the relationships between demographic variables such as travel experience, second language ability, and years of teaching experience. The findings also reported positive relationships between the subscales of Hett’s (1993) Global-Mindedness Scale and the attributes of international-mindedness as defined by the International Baccalaureate’s learner profile. The results of this study are intended to advance knowledge of the development of global-mindedness for school leaders around the world.
