This comprehensive survey of the principalship is guided by two overall goals: to convey the genuine excitement inherent in the subject of the principalship, and to present the material with both theoretical and practical integrity. Lunenberg and Irby have organized this book around the standards developed by the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium. Using a strong theoretical and scholarly foundation, this text address topics and issues faced daily by every principal at every school level. Beverly Irby's research on women and minorities in the principalship is highlighted, as are a number of key topics such as curriculum restructuring, bilingual education, student safety and school violence, and nontraditional organizational structures.
