I have just commenced work on a post-doctoral project, Explaining Teacher Practices in Danish Schools and their Impact on student performance, which uses data from 2011 national surveys of school principals and ninth grade mathematics and Danish teachers. Drawing on the literature on leadership and implementation, it will examine the role of attitudinal and behavioral factors such as school leadership and teachers' coping strategies. Side by side, I have another research project dealing with the implementation of policy for vulnerable children and youth in Denmark. It aims to examine through a series of papers the influence of factors operating at different levels of the municipality, such as elected representatives on the municipal council, municipal CEOs and caseworkers, on how policy is implemented at the frontline.
