Laffey, James L.; Laffey, Donna G.
The results of a statewide survey of the professional preparation and current leadership practices of middle and intermediate school principals in relation to reading programs are described in this paper. The first section of the paper describes the survey questions in the areas of professional preparation of middle school principals, current leadership practices of principals, and current reading programs. The second section provides an interpretation of the responses from the survey. The third section summarizes the results, which indicated that the state's middle school principals were not adequately prepared to provide creditable leadership of reading programs. In addition, this section offers six recommendations for addressing the problem. (HTH)
