...in Recife, Brazil

Description

Headteacher of Escola Maciel Pinheiro in north-east Brazil, Lucia de Sousa Periera, is a strong leader who instills respect in the school despite its situation in a bad neighbourhood.

Lucia has introduced a student union and school council, and the school recently came third in the region in the national exam for secondary education. Lucia was chosen for an international school leadership project and visited schools in England. As a result, she has introduced classroom observation to her school, something which is not generally done in Brazil. We watch her progress.

This video is part of a series looking at inspirational headteachers and the positive effect their leadership has had on the schools they've worked with.
