ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Lamar University - Beaumont
This qualitative phenomenological research study used narrative inquiry to investigate the effective practices and beliefs of 10 Texas principals in high achieving majority Hispanic mid-level schools. Participant interviews were analyzed using the Creswell (2007) six step method for analyzing phenomenological studies. Findings from this study affirm that passionate principals who are involved, engaged, and lead by example are able to transcend the social and economic barriers that separate them from their students and achieve success. Other findings from this study include the importance of building relationships with the students and recognizing and then meeting their needs. Findings also emphasized the importance of staying engaged and focused in educating all students. The research presented in this study provides school principals and administrators with proven instructional practices that have met the needs of Hispanic students in effective Hispanic majority mid-level schools.
