Principals' Challenges to Adverse Employment Actions: An Empirical Analysis of the Case Law
Mayger, Linda K.; Zirkel, Perry A.
NASSP Bulletin, v98 n3 p219-236 Sep 2014
This article provides a tabular analysis of court rulings where public school principals challenged the adverse employment actions of involuntary transfer, suspension, demotion, nonrenewal, constructive termination, and termination during the period 1998-2012. The primary findings were that (a) the judicial outcomes were markedly in favor of the defendant school districts and (b) although the number of claims had increased during this 15-year period, the outcomes trend did not correspondingly shift in favor of the plaintiff-principals.
