African American Women Principals in Urban Schools: Realities, (Re)constructions, and Resolutions.
Bloom, Collette M.; Erlandson, David A.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v39 n3 p339-69 Aug 2003
Using a naturalistic inquiry approach, analysis of indepth interviews reveals portraits of three African American women administrators emerging from their visible absences, illusionary opportunities, and imaginary schools with stories of strength, identity formation, and a collective consciousness in working for and with the black community in urban schools. Draws implications for leadership theory, research, and practice. (Contains 56 references.)(Authors/PKP)
