The Texas High School Principal: Characteristics and Views on Selected Educational Issues.
Shaver, Louis Harold
The purpose of this study was to draw a comprehensive, reliable, and current profile of the Texas senior high school principalship. Data were gathered through distribution of a questionnaire to principals in each of five University Interscholastic League school classifications. Included in the questionnaire were sections dealing with personal characteristics, educational preparation, professional experience, duties and compensation, and professional activities. Efforts were made to determine principals' attitudes toward professional negotiations, certification and preparation standards for administrators, evaluation of teachers, educational planning, student activism and unrest, and the role of the Federal Government in education. This report is divided into: (1) general outline of the study; (2) review of the literature related to the secondary school principalship; (3) analysis of responses to the questionnaire items; and (4) findings, conclusions, and recommendations.
