ENThe article discusses the social phenomenon of a scientist who became the appointed leader of the education reform. Based on the shifting educational paradigm in the context of changes taking place in the ideological paradigm of the state, Lithuanian education reform of the last decade of the 20th and the first decade of the 21st centuries is considered a challenge for the appointed leaders. One of such leaders representing multiple levels of education management during the first five years of the reform was educational scientist Prof. Dr. Habil. Marijona Barkauskaitė. The article addresses two periods of her activity, namely that of her duties as Head of Vilnius city Department of Education and as Vice- Minister of Lithuanian Ministry of Culture and Education. The method applied in the article is a case analysis performed using a qualitative research strategy, analysis of scientific literature and education reform documents, an in-depth interview as well as an expert opinion survey. The research problem: What role can the appointed leader play in an education reform? The research object: The role of the appointed leader M. Barkauskaite in ensuring stability of the ideas of education reform while implementing the changes. The goal: to actualize the role of the appointed leader and his/her leadership qualities in ensuring stability of the ideas of education reform while implementing the changes. The tasks: To reveal the circumstances under which the scientist became the appointed leader. To highlight the role of the appointed leader in managing a city level department of education and a government level field of education. To highlight the importance of the phenomenon of leadership in the early days of the reform. The following conclusions are drawn in the article:M. Barkauskaite’s case is an example of such leadership when situation choses and appoints the leader.A scientist was appointed the leader by the complexity of situation of those days. Having become the appointed leader, the scientist adequately met the challenges of the situation and fulfilled the expectations of the groups concerned with her leadership. She ensured stability of the ideas of education reform while implementing the changes, therefore her role as the leader during the first five years of the reform is important. A scientist and the appointed leader, M. Barkauskaite stayed true to the virtues and principles in her activities and strengthened the authority among the followers of the reform. The leadership ensuring changes and advance which was demonstrated by M. Barkauskaite during the first five years of independent Lithuania was a new phenomenon in education management. It encouraged development of democratic relationships and constituted an example of such relationships itself. Building her leadership upon prominently expressed emotional intellect and the model of leadership as service, a scientist and the appointed leader M. Barkauskaite managed to change people’s attitudes and beliefs. This was particularly important while seeking to consolidate educational changes, reducing tensions arising from reform novelties and ensuring stability. [From the publication]
