Who Is Leading Our Schools? An Overview of School Administrators and Their Careers - In this report, the researchers examine: (1) the characteristics and career paths of U.S. principals and superintendents; (2) modes of entry to and exit from the school administrative field; (3) job movement within the school leadership field; and (4) the links between principals' pay, school characteristics and their perceptions of their school. The authors provide numerous conclusions, including that there is no nationwide shortage of school administrators, as well as recommendations and suggested areas of future study. (Susan M. Gates, Jeanne Ringel, Lucrecia Santibanez, with Catherine Chung and Karen Ross, RAND Education, 2003)...
