Superintendent Turnover in Rural School Districts.
Grady, Marilyn L.; Bryant, Miles
This paper examines the degree of superintendent turnover in Nebraska, a state dominated by rural school districts. It also lists the causes of turnover as reported by short-term superintendents. This study finds that turnover is higher in the subject rural districts than the national average. Superintendents report that they leave these rural positions for personal family reasons, because of the particular nature of the rural position, because of conflict with rural boards of education, and for career advancement. While the study did not empirically compare its rural districts and superintendents with other districts and superintendents, there is reason to expect unique differences in rural areas. This paper calls for more information about superintendent turnover and its causes. (Author/TES)
