"We Really Do Not... Talk Like This:" Principals in Dialogue
Ketelle, Diane
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v5 n2 p49-53 Sum 2008
There is a disconnect between what principals are being asked to manage and accomplish and the level of support they receive to meet expectations. At a time when rhetoric on the principalship is focused on collaboration, most principals find themselves working in an isolated position within hierarchical organizations. And while principals are expected to create "learning communities" at their schools, it's hard to know where the principal belongs in the midst of all of it, even though principals are viewed as the most central part of school reform. The project outlined in this article was based on the premise that the opportunity to participate in dialogue matters to principals and can help them think about their work in new ways.
