The Making of the Principal: A Study of Recent Literature for Elementary School Principals.
Poe, M. Catherine; And Others
Based on the view that the principal's influence is felt long after students leave school, this study looked at the literature designed to help elementary principals eradicate sexism in the schools. First the researchers attempted to examine information on eradicating sexism in the texts used in graduate schools to train principals, but found a dearth of books specifically designed for elementary principals. They then examined recent literature in educational journals. The journals yielded very little relevant material, although some articles in the magazine "Principal" gave pertinent advice, research findings, and useful information. Most articles in other educational or scholarly journals were superficial, with little information a principal could apply to his or her school. It is recommended that the educational and scholarly journals make a concentrated effort to address this lack of information. (Author/JM)
