The Senior High School Principalship. Volume I: The National Survey.
Byrne, David R.; And Others
A national study was made in 1977 to update the assessment of the principalship and to describe the characteristics, conditions, and perceptions of senior high school principals and of significant other persons involved with schools. This report provides a baseline of "normative-descriptive" information about principals, their views, and working conditions. Data collected from a random sample of senior high school principals included school characteristics; current status of programs and personnel; job tasks; professional background; professional activities; constraints and issues; work with the community; involvement of parents and community agencies; perceptions and opinions about priorities and tasks, rewards, and status; and perceptions of education's future. The survey was correlated with a study completed and published by the National Association of Secondary School Principals in 1965. The results of that study are referred to in this publication where appropriate. (Author/MLF)
