    My current school which gives a perception of being an Excellent school has not had another Headteacher resigned (cant be sure if they were made to). We are constantly getting new students and all the kids are enjoying being at the school. Staff are enjoying it to except for all the drama. What could be the possible reasons for dismissals or resignations of such a high number?

    The owner is asking them to do something so stupid / unethical / illogical that the heads are refusing to do it, and he still hasn't got the message?

    Yes- sounds as if they are refusing to do what the owner wants them to do

    The owner doesnt seem to have any input in to the School itself.

    What a lovely idea! The owner of the school lets the principal make the decisions. Amazing! And which yellow brick road should I walk down?

    If the staff and students are lovely, and the owner lets the head do as they please, then there are only two choices left.
    1. All 5 heads are insane and/or had sudden family crises back home.
    2. The owner isn’t honoring promises made regarding the head’s contract.

    The owner has many businesses and doesnt have input in to the school. They opened it just to have a school in the portfolio as it seems. I guess it must be the board

    In most for profit schools, there is little if any difference between board and owner.

    Keep drinking the cool aid - they definitely do have input you just don't see/know how its done!!
