"Spirituality? It's the Core of My Leadership": Empowering Leadership in an Inclusive Elementary School.
Keyes, Maureen W.; Hanley-Maxwell, Cheryl; Capper, Colleen A.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v35 n2 p203-37 Apr 1999
An ethnographic study of a principal heading an inclusive elementary school showed that a supportive environment for critique encourages teacher autonomy, risk taking, and consideration of alternative implementation frameworks. Creating a democratic environment coalesces staff. Principal behaviors are undergirded by a spirituality grounded in personal/professional beliefs. (66 references) (MLH)
