About this title


The role of the principal has been changing continuously over the last five decades, and political, social, religious, environmental and economic forces have drastically affected the world in which they now operate. The changing dynamics of the school environment in which the principalship thrives necessitate a deep understanding of the role of principalship. What better way to do this than through a research-based examination of the role, the experiences and the dilemmas principals face and the changing environment in which they must operate?

The purpose of this work is to highlight the various approaches to research taken by scholars seeking greater understanding of the working lives of principals, as well as to examine principals’ roles in different parts of Canada.

The roles and expectations of principals have changed dramatically over the past century, and are likely going to continue to change. This book begins with a survey of why educators choose to become principals. The next chapter discusses the role of principals, followed by an examination of the learning gleaned by principals from their work experiences. Next comes an exploration of the emerging themes of empowering leadership in the lived experiences of women principals. Another chapter looks at the experiences and dilemmas of principal succession.
