The Interactive Effects of Gender and Leadership Style on Post Internship Concerns about Becoming a Principal
Hines, Mack T., III
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v4 n3 p42-47 Fall 2007
The principal preparation internship is designed to prepare aspiring principals for the principalship. Principals are expected to lead this initiative through activities that develop aspiring principals' understanding of school leadership. However, no research has determined if principals' involvement influences preservice principals' concerns about becoming a principal. Additionally, few, if any, studies have determined if universities and school districts examine their methods for pairing preservice principals with cooperating principals. This study investigates the effects of the principal's gender and leadership style on preservice principals' post internship concerns about the principalship. (Contains 1 table.)
