Female Traditional Principals and Co-Principals: Experiences of Role Conflict and Job Satisfaction
Eckman, Ellen Wexler; Kelber, Sheryl Talcott
Journal of Educational Change, v11 n3 p205-219 Aug 2010
This paper presents a secondary analysis of survey data focusing on role conflict and job satisfaction of 102 female principals. Data were collected from 51 female traditional principals and 51 female co-principals. By examining the traditional and co-principal leadership models as experienced by female principals, this paper addresses the impact of the type of leadership model (traditional principalship or co-principalship) has on women principals with regard to role conflict and job satisfaction. The co-principals experienced lower levels of role conflict and higher levels of job satisfaction than did the female traditional principals.
