Reconceptualizing the Principalship (as a Profession):
Bogotch, Ira
This essay argues in favor of extending the social construction of the role of the principal to include values and experiences, while being alert to identifying those values and experiences that are potentially educative. The premise is that the practical lived experiences of educators, particularly school administrators, are too narrow for professionalization as practiced outside schools. Therefore, what is recommended is a broader perspective of educational leadership as a field that encompasses new roles for principals, superintendents, professors, and policymakers, along with a concurrent shift in change and implementation strategies derived from policymaking to an innovative redevelopment strategy derived from pedagogy.
