Ginsberg, Rick
Phi Delta Kappan, v90 n4 p292-297 Dec 2008
Being a principal, superintendent, dean, provost, or president carries a wide array of responsibilities and burdens.

Author Rick Ginsberg identifies strategies that educational leaders have identified as helping cope with the burdens of leadership. (Contains 14 endnotes.)
