Advice from the Field in Educational Leadership for Female Principals
Funk, Carole; Polnick, Barbara
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v3 n1 p21-35 Jan 2005
The number of female school principals in the United States continues to grow each year, and many of these women are evolving into outstanding educational leaders. Cultural and gender barriers, however, continue to limit their leadership effectiveness despite their overall achievements. Many of these women have not maximized their leadership effectiveness despite their overall achievements, because they work in cultures that are not conducive to their transformational leadership styles. In addressing this and other issues, the authors of this article have provided a research synthesis regarding the female principalship. This "advice from the field" is designed to enhance the overall leadership effectiveness of practicing principals.
