"Successful" Principals: A Contested Notion for Superintendents and Principals

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to interrogate how superintendents and principals define and operationalize “success” in ways that both affirm and transgress traditional hegemonic configurations. By taking a grounded theory approach, this study aims to expand the discourse of/about success to include practices, values, beliefs, outcomes, habits, rituals, and a host of other understandings and interpretations of that particular term. Our hope is to move the discourse beyond conventional understanding towards a richer, more complex understanding of “success” that engenders process, intent, outcomes, and purpose. This paper presents findings from a qualitative case study exploring administrators’ conceptions and definitions of success in the context of the principalship. In order to probe these definitions, researchers conducted interviews with superintendents and principals from six districts in a Midwestern metropolitan region.
