The Contexts of Partial Truths: An Analysis of Principals's Discourse.
Bogotch, Ira E.; Roy, Cynthia B.
Journal of Educational Administration, v35 n3-4 p234-52 1997
Using sociolinguistic methods (discourse analysis) and ethonography, examines the continuous, inprocess relationship between everyday talk and school leadership at a Louisiana elementary school. Demonstrates how administrative talk shapes and is shaped by a school's context and why moral leadership is tenuous and problematic. The real challenge lies in expanding participants' contexts of partial truths, thereby enhancing educational discourse through social interactions. (MLH)
