The School Board Looks at the Status of the Principal.
Heddinger, Fred M.
Education is now the largest single enterprise in American Society. Educational employees in 1964 were approximately 3 million of 11.5 million public employees nationally. Principals have an important responsibility in the leadership and direction of such employees. Principals have a critical role to play in ensuring that educational public policy is not determined at a collective bargaining table--they are the key people in this overall bargaining process. Principals are playing an increasingly important role in the financial management of education, including decisionmaking as to program priorities. Principals will ultimately exercise much greater discretion in determining how to reach educational objectives providing they assume their proper role of responsibility for much of educational leadership.
