Toward a Theory of School Administration: The Centrality of Leadership.
Greenfield, William D., Jr.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v31 n1 p61-85 Feb 1995
Three conditions distinguish school administrators' work from that of nonschool colleagues: schools' uniquely moral character; a highly educated, autonomous, and permanent workforce; and regular, predictable threats to organizational stability. This environment demands that school administrators rely more excessively on leadership than routine administration to influence teachers and negotiate the complex interplay among moral, instructional, political, managerial, and interpersonal role demands.
