This paper briefly explores the influence of micro-political factors on school organisation and management. Working from Ball's characterisation of the school as a context where micropolitical activity is inevitable, it takes one perspective from organisational behaviour and looks at the school through this lens. The perspective selected-small group theory-draws principally from the early contributions of Edgar Schein. The intention is to show how micropolitical analyses of school cultures and teacher behaviour can be used as a tool to increase the understanding of school leaders. It is suggested therefore, that micropolitics is a valuable, if rather neglected, area of study for those wishing to participate in the management of schools.
