Principal Voice for Successful Policy Implementation: Lessons Learned from Teacher Tenure
Angelle, Pamela S.; Lomascolo, David J.
Research in Educational Administration & Leadership, v5 n1 p234-273 Mar 2020
This study examined the perceptions of US school principals toward one US state's revamped teacher tenure law and how principals perceived that the law affected their ability to evaluate and retain effective teachers. Principal interviews indicated the law had a positive impact on their ability to evaluate and retain effective teachers despite barriers associated with the teacher evaluation system. Findings were examined through Hess' (1999) political attractiveness of reform framework. Results highlight that future research should examine stakeholder and principal voice in policy initiatives and education agendas. As such, a conceptual model for predicting the success of educational reform initiatives is provided.
