The Principal's Vision: Necessity or Non-Issue?
Kemp, Andrew; Hardy, Samuel; Harris, Paulette
Journal of Research in Education, v24 n2 p51-62 Fall-Win 2014
Public school teachers and administrators share a common belief with regard to the principal's articulation of his school's vision. This fact was borne from a survey conducted in Georgia involving 4,700 teachers and other school professionals. The responses of teachers and principals to questions regarding school vision were markedly consistent and point to possibly an overlooked element in school administration--an element to enhance school improvement. In this paper, the authors seek to understand why both teachers and principals value a specific, clear vision and the potential benefits, which can be gained from understanding the nexus.
