Micropolitics And The Principalship: A Qualitative Examination Of How Principals Develop This Critical Attribute Of School Leadership, John Stimmel Oct 2010

Micropolitics And The Principalship: A Qualitative Examination Of How Principals Develop This Critical Attribute Of School Leadership, John Stimmel

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Schools, like most contemporary organizations, are complex places, and there is an extensive body of evidence that outlines the skills that school leaders must possess to effectively operate schools. Effective school leadership is essential, and not only for the safe and orderly operations of school. Recent evidence indicates that a positive relationship exists between principal effectiveness and student achievement.

The complexity of schools is due in part to the fact that schools are immersed in politics. This case sought to explore how principals acquire and develop the micropolitical skills required for their position from the onset of the principalship.

Accelerated Baccalaureate Nursing Students: Perceptions Of Success, Barbara B. Blozen

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

This study also examined demographic characteristics of these accelerated students ...


Educational Attainment, Population Increase And The Progress Of African Americans, Amadu Jacky Kaba Jan 2010

Educational Attainment, Population Increase And The Progress Of African Americans, Amadu Jacky Kaba

Amadu Jacky Kaba

This paper claims that African Americans are making consistent progress in college or university enrollment and degree attainment. These gains in educational attainment have led to a substantial proportion of African Americans to rise in many important sectors of society, such as business, the military and politics. However, there is a concern that unlike the Asian and Hispanic populations in the United States, proportionally, the African American population is not increasing as rapidly. This slow annual growth of the African American population may have both economic and political implications in the years and decades to come.
