Superintendents' Mobility Constructs and Succession Patterns.
Watson, D. Gene
The way superintendents perceive their mobility and the succession of routes they use in attaining their positions were compared. A stratified random sample was drawn from the total population of public school superintendents in Illinois based on an extension of the insider-outsider dichotomy. It was found that outsiders tended to use more general constructs of mobility, while insiders were more particularistic in construct formation. Likewise, while outsiders were less specific than insiders in discriminating among categories of intrinsic motivations toward mobility -- personal, family, or value-oriented -- outsiders were less specific in discriminating between two kinds of extrinsic mobility inducements -- materialistic and prestigious.
