School governing is an important part of the governance of education systems around the world. Governing and governance are complex matters. Governance involves a range of bodies including non-state actors working in combination (Kooiman, 2003) and therefore, as Rhodes (1997) asserts governance more than government. Viewed in this way, governance is conceptualized as a network, which is the sets of formal and informal institutional linkages between governmental and other actors that are structured around shared interests in public policymaking and implementation (Rhodes, 2007).
