Detachment, Fear, and Expectation: A Faculty's Response to the Impending Succession of Its Principal.
Fauske, Janice R.; Ogawa, Rodney T.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v23 n2 p23-44 May 1987
Describes how an elementary school coped with its principal's impending departure and extends R. Gephart's grounded theory of leader succession--that faculty collectively degrade the departing principal's status. This study finds individual degradation attitudes prevalent among teachers lacking meaningful contact with the departing principal. Includes 24 references. (MLH)
