Heads on Deputy Headship: Impossible Roles for Invisible Role Holders?
Ribbins, Peter
Educational Management & Administration, v25 n3 p295-308 Jul 1997
Notes that headteachers are interesting, but deputy headteachers are not. Explores how British assistant principals are depicted within the small numbers of studies focusing specifically on this role, in the more substantial literature on the principalship, and in the author's 34 selective interviews with heads. Most heads found deputy headship an unpleasant experience and inadequate training for their own job. (20 references) (MLH)
