1. Goodney, Thomas L. ASSESSING KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDINGS, SKILLS, AND TRAITS: A DISCREPENCY ANALYSIS OF THOSE WHO PREPARE AND HIRE SECONDARY PRINCIPALS IN OHIO.

Degree: EdD, Educational Leadership, 2007, Miami University

A purported discrepancy exists in Ohio between what knowledge, understandings, skills, and traits are most important for preparing secondary principals compared to those valued in selecting and hiring secondary administrators. The purpose of this study was to determine the areas and the degree of discrepancy, if any, in perceptions among educational leadership faculty and superintendents in the value and utility of Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium Standards (ISLLC) and Ohio Standards for Principals (OSP) as well as the specific knowledge, understandings, skills, and traits contained in them. The design of this primarily quantitative study used simple descriptive statistics and basic tests to identify significant statistical variances between educational leadership faculty and superintendents and assistant superintendents. Additionally, this study uses limited qualitative data gathered from a one-time facilitated discussion that further illustrate and support the findings. As expected, some statistical analyses of knowledge, understandings, traits, and/or skills revealed distinct differences in the perceptions of superintendents and educational leadership professors. However, comparison of means of the two groups generally showed more agreement than variation, a finding that surprised participants in a facilitated discussion among a small group of superintendents, assistant superintendents, and educational leadership faculty. Other findings yielded statistically significant correlations between rankings of certain ISLLC and OSP standards and specific demographics of educational faculty. In effect, adjunct professors and full professors seem to differ on the importance of preparing secondary principals in relationship to developing, articulating, and implementing a shared vision, in addition to engaging parents and community members in the educational process. Clearly this new line of inquiry exposes the inherent discrepancies among the realities of standards, accountability, and structures that define the parameters of the secondary principalship as seen by superintendents and assistant superintendents and by theories of leadership, teaching, and learning that frame the scope of principal preparation programs. Further, this study raises new and important questions for future investigation that could serve to bridge the gap and better prepare secondary principals for what is expected of them in the field. Advisors/Committee Members: Bueschel, Ellen (Advisor).

2. Faircloth, Glenn L., Jr. A Qualitative Study/Counter-StoryTelling: A Counter-Narrative of Literacy Education For African American Males.

Degree: EdD, Educational Leadership, 2009, Miami University

Black males are portrayed….in a limited number of roles, most of them deviant, dangerous, and dysfunctional… This constant barrage of predominantly disturbing images inevitably contributes to the public’s negative stereotypes of black men, particularly of those who are perceived as young, hostile, and impulsive. Clearly, the message says: If they entertain you, enjoy them (at a safe distance); if they serve you, avoid them. Thus, young black males are stereotyped by the five “d’s”: dumb, deprived, dangerous, deviant, and disturbed. There is no room in this picture for comprehension, caring, or compassion of the plight of these black men (Gibbs, 1988). The purpose of this study is to tell the story of what some African American males experience with literacy as they matriculate through high school; using the reading portion of the Ohio Graduation Test as a precursor. I am interested in this area of research for two reasons. First, reading is the fundamental basis for all academic learning. Secondly, I want to tell the story of the struggles, successes, alienation, and acceptance that these young men may have experienced while trying to read. The four chapters of this study include the development, the process,the results of the research, and the implications of this study.
