Attracting Principals to the Superintendency: Conditions that Make a Difference to Principals.
Howley, Aimee; Pendarvis, Edwina; Biggs, Thomas
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v10 n43 2002
Examined conditions of school superintendency that make it attractive or unattractive as a career move for principals in Ohio. Responses from 508 principals show that the ability to make a difference and extrinsic motivators (e.g., salary and benefits) make the superintendency attractive, while increased responsibility, accountability requirements, and pressure to perform make superintendents' positions less desirable.
