Becoming an Administrator: The Socialization of an Assistant Principal through an Autoethnographic Lens
Lattuca, F. Patrick, III.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College
This study is part of a limited but growing body of research that examines and describes the social side of public school administration. Most training programs that prepare public school administrators are highly effective with regard to providing students the theoretical foundation that surrounds administrative roles. But as the literature illustrates there is a gap between theory and practice. This autoethnographical dissertation addresses this gap by providing an analytical description what individuals do when acting as a public school administrator. Specifically, this study follows my transition into an assistant principalship and how I was socialized into the role.
