Strategic Considerations for Improving the Principalship. Occasional Papers in Educational Policy Analysis: Paper No. 411.
Croghan, John H.; Lake, Dale G.
This paper addresses the need for a strategic focus on the improvement of the principalship. Whatever technical changes are made in a school district's formal system for selecting, training, appraising, compensating, and certifying principals, there are predictable consequences for the political and cultural dimensions of that district (that is, the decision-making process by the one hiring, and the introduction of new types of principals with different values and skills). It is hoped that statewide efforts and local school district efforts to improve the principal will pay careful attention to all the technical, political, and cultural dimensions involved in any strategic focus on the principalship.
