Principals and Managers and Leaders: A Qualitative Study of the Perspectives of Selected Elementary School Principals.
Cascadden, Dean S. T.
Journal of School Leadership, v8 n2 p137-70 Mar 1998
A qualitative study explored eight elementary principals' conceptions about leadership and management constructs; beliefs about the role of their personal philosophies; and language used to describe themselves, their work, and their schools. Principals identified four issues: conflicting roles, being there, evolving as leaders, and balancing culture and distributed decision making. Schools need democratic leadership.
