Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The high school principal wears many faces in the community in which she/he lives and works (Cavanaugh and Yoder, 1984). Most patrons of the school district know who the principal is and hold high expectations for him/her. At the same time, when the residents of a school district are asked to define the principal's job in their school district, it is often hard for them to come up with a clear-cut statement. This is due to a lack of understanding of the principal 's responsibilities in the school system, and to the complexity of the principal 's role in education (Hallinger and Murphy, 1983).
