School administrators--Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;
The role of an educational leader has changed in the last century. The principal of a school has more responsibility and accountability than ever before. Chief among them is being a role model for students and adults in the school and community, and a leader in the school's progress. Always in the public eye, the principal must make choices based on good judgement and data, and must search for what is best for the stakeholders. The principal should be open to new ideas and pushing the school forward. As Wilmore said in Principal Leadership, a school that is not moving forward is standing still and stagnant, and some schools have done that for too long, which is an injustice to kids and the community (Wilmore, 2002).
