Kentucky Elementary School Principals: A Descriptive Analysis.
Richardson, M. D.; And Others
Findings from a study of Kentucky elementary school principals are presented in this paper, with attention to their demographic characteristics and roles in educational reform. Questionnaires mailed to all 1,122 elementary principles (including both public and private schools) in Kentucky yielded 570 returns, an approximate 51 percent response rate. Data analysis supported the premise that Kentucky elementary school principals are white, middle-aged males with a salary approximately 75 percent greater than that of teachers. The majority have slightly more than 10 years' total experience as a principal, but 60 percent plan to retire within the next 10 years. Most are satisfied with the quality of their inservice training and the current state administrative certification requirements. Fourteen tables present survey data. (LMI)
