Abstract

The number of female school principals in the United States continues to grow each year, and many of these women are evolving into outstanding educational leaders. Cultural and gender barriers, however, continue to limit their leadership effectiveness despite their overall achievements. Many of these women have not maximized their leadership effectiveness despite their overall achievements. Many of these women have not maximized their leadership effectiveness because they work in cultures that are not conducive to their transformational leadership styles. In addressing these issues, the authors of this article have provided a research synthesis regarding the female principal-ship in order to provide "advice from the field" for practicing principals that is designed to enhance their overall leadership effectiveness.
