Examining the Satisfaction of Educational Leaders and Their Intent to Pursue Career Advancement in Public School Administration
Conrad, Tracey L.; Rosser, Vicki J.
Journal of School Leadership, v17 n5 p570-600 Sep 2007
This statewide study examined selected demographic characteristics, worklife experiences, and personal issues that influence the satisfaction of administrators (assistant principals, principals, assistant superintendents) and their intent to leave their positions and careers or pursue career advancement in public school administration. The results of this study suggest that this group of school administrators is satisfied with their worklife experiences; however, personal issues and individual demographic characteristics have a major influence on their intent to leave their careers and professions or pursue advancement. Moreover, few intend to pursue public school advancement, with the exception of assistant principals, who are the least qualified and experienced but most willing. (Contains 2 figures, 3 tables, and 2 footnotes.)
