Hausman, Charles S.; Crow, Gary M.; Sperry, David J.
NASSP Bulletin, v84 n617 p5-14 Sep 2000
The "ideal" principal is facing a world of decentralized school structures, increasing and changing environmental boundaries and roles, less homogeneous schools, closer contact with stakeholders, and a market-driven view of education. Principals should view themselves as environmental negotiators, not merely school-system managers. (Contains 32 references.) (MLH)
