Four Hundred Elementary School Teachers Look at the Elementary School Principalship.
Stoker, W. M. Fred
During the summer of 1974 16 students, all experienced teachers, devised an opinionnaire scale concerning the elementary school teacher attitudes toward the elementary school principal. Each investigator conducted interviews, either by telephone or in person, with 25 experienced elementary teachers from several Texas Panhandle districts. The following questions were asked: How do elementary school principals spend their time? What kinds of principals' activities have been most helpful to you? How was your principal selected? What was his background? How should principals be selected? Should teachers be involved in this selection? How should the ideal principal spend his time? What could he do to be of most help to you as a teacher? What principals' activities actually impair your teaching effectiveness? Should the principals' positions be restricted to men or to womrn? Should teachers be involved in administration of the elementary school? The teachers were also asked to describe the ideal principal. This report is made up of generalizations on the 400 teachers' reactions to these questions. (Author/IRT)
