Legal Knowledge of Secondary School Principals: Impact of Selected Variables.
Gordon, Howard R. D.
This study assesses the impact of selected variables on the legal knowledge of 136 secondary school principals in the state of West Virginia. The variables selected for study include: (1) training; (2) teaching; (3) experience; (4) administrative experience; and (5) school district size. Analysis revealed that selected variables in this study had little or no impact on the legal knowledge of secondary school principals. The author recommends that secondary school principals be more familiar with practical approaches taken by his/her state's laws in relevant areas. A questionnaire was mailed to each of the 136 secondary school principals with two follow-up mailings yielding an 88 percent response rate. (Author/EH)
