Investing in Leadership: The District's Role in Managing Principal Turnover
Mascall, Blair; Leithwood, Kenneth
Leadership and Policy in Schools, v9 n4 p367-383 2010
This article presents the results of research into the impact of principal turnover on schools, and the ability of schools to mitigate the negative effects of frequent turnover by distributing leadership in the schools. The findings from this qualitative and quantitative analysis show that rapid principal turnover does indeed have a negative effect on a school, primarily affecting the school culture. Where there is high principal turnover, taking a coordinated approach to leadership distribution appears to mitigate at least some of the negative consequences of leadership turnover. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
