Before the presentation of the used theories, the idea about New Public Management as ideal and background is presented to give an understanding of its history and effect on today’s system. The following step is presenting then the method for the gathering and analyze of empirical material and the theories that are relevant to the questions. Interviews with four headmasters – two working on public schools and the rest on private school, have been done and are the base for the empirical material. It is noted that the headmasters know their role and actively balance between interests from different actors. Concerning the values, they are interpreted different depending on the headmaster, and it seems that the economical values are favored over the democratic values in times of a short budget. (Less)
