In the present research, quantitative method of data is utilized by using the questionnaire with open and closed-ended questions to Greek teachers from the region of Epirus.
The findings of the research showed that the school principal’s role, activity and personality are key factors for the successful implementation of differentiation. The results, though limited, are the starting point for further exploration of the subject, and this would be particularly important as the potential for innovative alternative teaching methods could be increased and this may contribute dynamically to the expansion of learning and teaching.
