Abstract

This chapter proposes a conceptual lens through which the challenges and opportunities facing education administrators within the complex di- versity and changes in the Asia-Pacific region can be understood. It con- ceptualizes education systems as ecological in nature, in which horizontal, vertical, and temporal forces are at play in shaping them, which in turn affect the daily work of educational administrators. In doing so, it asks: Who has been given the agency? What kinds of power currents are in play? What are the political enablers and disablers in the narratives provided in this part of the book?
