factors of ethnicity, socioeconomic percentages, academic performance, and school
location (urban versus rural) on principal leadership with data analyzed when schools
were placed into groups ex-post-facto.
One-Hundred and sixty-nine teachers representing six public high schools located in
Virginia were surveyed using Powell’s (2004) survey. Five areas, or domains of
leadership were analyzed, (I) Vision, Mission, and Culture; (II) Curriculum and
Classroom Instruction; (III) Collaboration and Shared Leadership; (IV) Family and
Community Involvement; (V) Effective Management.
Quantitative data were analyzed (means, frequency, ANOVA, Tukey-Kramer HSD) with
school results placed into demographic groups and locations to examine group
differences in perceptions of principal leadership. Significant differences were found
when schools were grouped according to location and demographic factors. A model of
the contextual elements on the role of principal leadership was developed, and
implications for research and future studies were presented.
