What Knowledge Matters Most to On-the-Job School Administrators in Florida?
Mullen, Carol A.
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v2 n1 p11-15 Spr 2005
This article is a report of an investigation into what practicing leaders in Florida believe they must know and be capable of in order to effectively perform their role. The focus is relevant to the preparation of principals and to best practices that can advance the profession of educational administration. Reflecting an unusual approach to empirical study, this study initiates conversation about establishing a knowledge base for principals and professors by exploring leadership as actually practiced in schools "and" by turning to novice administrators for feedback. For the purposes of this research, "new administrator/leader" was defined as assistant principals and principals who have been working in their school-based positions for up to two years. (Contains 2 tables.)
