State Administrators Association Director's Perceptions of the Exiting Superintendent Phenomenon.
Hall, Gene E.; Difford, Gerald A.
Findings of a study that examined the exiting superintendent phenomenon are presented in this paper. Interviews were conducted with five state administrator association executives from California, Massachusetts, Florida, Colorado, and Indiana. Findings indicate that a trend of exiting superintendents does exist; however, the trend varies by state. The most common problems faced by superintendents involve finances or the stress of interacting with various groups, particularly school boards. There is a strong possibility that the numbers of exiting superintendents could rise dramatically. Eight recommendations are made for further study questions and research design.
