Outlines the rationale for exploring the role of culture in the practice of educational administration. Examines how culture fits into a broad theoretical framework for studying administrative behaviour in education. In doing so, distinguishes between the use of the societal culture construct as an exogenous and an endogenous variable. Argues that there is much conceptual leverage to be gained from employing culture as a variable in such a theoretical framework. Suggests a revisiting of the framework for studying educational administration developed by Getzels et al. almost 30 years ago. Finally, looks at the transmission of a knowledge base through training. Explores the implications that a cultural perspective has on the interpretation and use of knowledge as well as on its communication through preparation programmes. Contends that the cultural lens illuminates the limitations of the current knowledge base and supports the importance of this line of research in the future.
