School Accountability and Professional Job Responsibilities: A Perspective from Secondary Principals
Cooley, Van E.; Shen, Jianping
NASSP Bulletin, v87 n634 p10-25 2003
This article reports how secondary principals perceive the status of the accountability movement and their professional job responsibilities in the context of accountability. The data were collected from a nationally representative sample of secondary principals during the Schools and Staffing Survey 1999-2000. Respondents reported that there were specific incentives or corrective measures for meeting performance goals, that numerous responsibilities were added to their traditional roles, that they paid substantial attention to instructional leadership, and that management tasks still occupied more time and energy than leadership initiatives.
