Sex, Lies, and Hollywood's Administrators: The (De)construction of School Leadership in Contemporary Films.
Smith, Penny
Journal of Educational Administration, v37 n1 p50-65 1999
Shows how 28 contemporary films' messages about educational administrators shape and limit popular discourse about schools and their mission. Hollywood's celluloid images cannot capture our school communities' complex, challenging everyday realities. Practitioners should understand how mass media shapes policy debates about public institutions and appropriate administrator behavior. (12 references) (MLH)
