Images of Principal Instructional Leadership: From Super-Vision to Collaborative Inquiry.
Reitzug, Ulrich C.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v12 n4 p324-43 Sum 1997
Examines images of principals' instructional leadership, based on 10 supervision textbooks published between 1985 and 1995. Textbooks portrayed principals as experts and superiors, teachers as deficient and voiceless, teaching as fixed technology, and supervision as a discrete intervention. Images of professional growth (stressing collegiality and continuous improvement) suggested by studies of successful schools differ significantly from these textbook images. (96 references) (MLH)
