Abstract: The growing body of evidence on the role principals play in school improvement and student achievement coupled with evidence of the extremely high turnover rates of principals, points to the need to better understand the conditions under which principals work, how these conditions differ across schools, and how these conditions influence principal attrition and turnover. This paper presents the findings from and exploratory study on principal working conditions and argues that additional work and policy attention is needed in this area.

3. Boshers, Robyn. "Dynamic Ideology: Economic and Political Conditions as Barriers and Enabling Conditions for Challenges to the American Dream" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 10, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2019-06-16 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This paper explores notions of the American dream ideology, particularly its embracing of a degree of inequality in principle, and argues that it is not the static constant that academics and popular commentators have often taken it as. Rather, I argue that it is a dynamic concept that is continually questioned or reaffirmed and renegotiated with economic and historical shifts, and I document some examples of such shifts and their effect on the dominant ideology. I then explore changes in the political realm, particularly high levels of inequality in forms of political participation, what implications they hold for the American dream, and if such changes have led to challenges to or renegotiations of the ideology. Although it seems that high levels of inequality in both the economic and political realms should challenge certain tenets of the American dream, in many cases this has not occurred. I identify five major barriers that inhibit actual inequality from challenging the benefits of inequality in principle, which reveal the contradictions inherent in the American dream and the complicated ways in which Americans attempt to resolve these contradictions. However, despite these barriers, ideas do sometimes change, and I explore the possibilities that would enable such change.
