THE PRINCIPAL IN PROFILE, A STUDY OF KENTUCKY SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPALS.
FRADY, CLAUDE
FROM THE 206 QUESTIONNAIRES RETURNED FROM THE 337 KENTUCKY PUBLIC SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS, THE AUTHOR FOUND A COMPOSITE PRINCIPAL WHO IS--(1) A FAMILY MAN IN HIS MIDDLE FORTIES, BORN AND EDUCATED IN KENTUCKY, (2) A SOLID, ACTIVE MEMBER OF HIS SOCIAL COMMUNITY, AND (3) A MEMBER OF HIS PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS, ATTENDING ONE CONVENTION YEARLY AND CONSIDERING "THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SECONDARY SCHOOL PRINCIPALS BULLETIN" TO BE HIS MOST VALUABLE PROFESSIONAL PERIODICAL, AND PLANNING TO CONTINUE PRINCIPALSHIP. HE FAVORS (1) THE SUPREME COURT DECISIONS ON PRAYER, SCHOOL INTEGRATION, AND FACULTY DESEGREGATION, (2) FEDERAL AID TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS, (3) REQUIREMENT OF 18 CREDITS FOR HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION, (4) IMPROVEMENT OF THE ENGLISH CURRICULUM, (5) EMPHASIS ON GENERAL EDUCATION, AND (6) HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION FOR ALL. HE HOLDS A CONSERVATIVE VIEW TOWARD THE UNGRADED HIGH SCHOOL, THE CARNEGIE UNIT, EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION, AND TEAM TEACHING. HE BELIEVES THAT COLLEGES INFLUENCE HIGH SCHOOL COURSE OFFERINGS MORE THAN ANY OTHER INSTITUTION AND THAT NEITHER COLLEGE INSTRUCTORS NOR PROFESSORS ARE AWARE OF THE REALITIES OF PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION. FROM COMPARISON WITH A 1950 STUDY, THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT BOTH PRINCIPAL AND PRINCIPALSHIP HAVE IMPROVED. THE 33 QUESTIONS OF THE OPINION PROFILE ARE REPRODUCED. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "BULLETIN OF THE BUREAU OF SCHOOL SERVICE," VOLUME 38, NUMBER 3, MARCH 1966, OF THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY, AND IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY, LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY 40506, FOR $1.00.
