Managing Student Desegregation: A Comparative Study of the Functioning of Principals and Implications for Policy Research.
Noblit, George W.
This paper examines and compares the administrative styles of two principals who worked in a southern desegregated school. The emphasis in this study is on the policies and practices which were either effective or ineffective in helping each of the principals deal with the task of managing a desegregated school. Different actions taken by the principals in response to student, teacher, parent, and community demands, and their respective consequences, are described and discussed. It is pointed out that despite the different approaches used by the principals in dealing with desegregation related problems, resegregation was the result. It is concluded that applied social research must be made more relevant to the issues and problems surrounding desegregation. Policy considerations for such research are outlined. (EB)
