Gain a new perspective for revitalizing the assistant principalship!
While assistant principals play vital administrative roles, little attention has been granted to their training, selection, motivation, and job satisfaction. In this updated edition, Catherine Marshall and Richard M. Hooley focus on understanding the assistant principalship, uncovering problems, and identifying new solutions for these important school leaders.
This foundational resource provides a comprehensive study of what assistant principals do, who they are, and how these administrators-in-training can take charge of their careers. Unique issues highlighted within include
Policy concerns in the assistant principal role
The assistant as gateway to upper administrative mobility
The importance of support and motivation
The dependency on principals and their leadership style
This essential handbook supports the intrinsic value of the assistant principalship, while providing direction for improving the current system, evaluating methods of recruitment, and posing new metaphors and models for the position.
