Abstract

Schools in developing contexts, such as Sub-Saharan Africa, are often resource poor and seek to access resources from their external environments in order to improve school performance. Critical conduits for resource access are found among the school's external network of relationships between school administrators. Using both network and qualitative methods in the field, this research explores and describes the external social relationships among secondary school headteachers in Mukono District, Uganda. The findings identify implications of network structure for resource acquisition as to improving school performance.
