Principals as Instructional Leaders: An Ailing Panacea.
Education and Urban Society, v20 n3 p276-93 May 1988

Efforts to alter principal practices to meet this poorly defined and poorly researched construct reflect a lack of self-reference in the educational field. More study and thought are needed before plans of action are imposed. (BJV)
