The Principal's Role in Instructional Planning. NAESP School Leadership Digest Second Series, Number 8. ERIC/CEM Research Analysis Series, Number 23.
Mazzarella, Jo Ann
Although the principalship has existed for almost a century and a half, principals' roles are as varied as their surroundings and almost as difficult to generalize about. No part of the principal's role is debated with more fervor than the role he or she must play in the instructional program. As school systems have become more bureaucratic, many principals have come to feel like little more than superintendents' clerks. Some of the current literature about the conflicting roles of principals and ways around the administrative roadblocks is discussed in this review. (Author/MLF)
