The Balancing Act: How Principals Perceive the Competing Demands of Instructional Leadership and Managerial Leadership
Sharpe, Robert R.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
It is becoming increasingly difficult for principals to manage the challenges found in the current educational environment. Principals must lead schools as they juggle the many demands of the contemporary principalship. Principals often struggle in balancing the expectations of their many roles and responsibilities. At the center of this problem is the expectation of the principal to fill the role of both instructional leader and managerial leader in schools. This research project examined how principals perceive this dilemma and process the current challenges of their work. The study found that principals' perceptions of the demands of the job vary by selected demographic variables.
