Principals as Change Agents: Their Role in the Curriculum Implementation Process.
Binda, K. P.
Findings from a study that examined ways in which principals implement new or revised curricula are presented in this paper, which focuses on how personal constructs influence the curriculum implementation process. Data about principals' implementation styles were obtained from interviews with 10 principals and 10 female teachers, inschool observations, and analysis of students' work. Findings indicate a high level of successful implementation. Principals were concerned about curricula meeting students' needs and therefore provided professional development, materials, instructional leadership, and conditions for a harmonious school climate. Four figures and an appendix containing the research questions are included. (58 references) (LMI)
