Digital Technology: A Double-Edged Sword for a School Principal in Rural Pennsylvania
Kotok, Stephen; Kryst, Erica L.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v20 n4 p3-16 Dec 2017
This case study was inspired by visits to several different rural high schools in Pennsylvania. The case illuminates the challenges faced by rural principals and superintendents who want to integrate digital technology into their curriculum, but who lack certain financial and human capital resources. Although this case occurred in a remote, rural area, school leaders in various settings deal with similar dilemmas. The following case is designed for principal preparation courses such as instructional leadership, organizational leadership, and school budgeting. In addition, this case could be utilized in educational policy courses examining school choice policies and how traditional public school districts respond to competition from online charter schools.
