The Oral History of the Principalship

The Oral History of the Principalship

Creator Patrick W. Carlton
Description The Oral History of the Public School Principalship is an ongoing project designed to interview retired elementary, middle, and high school principals for their views, reminiscences, and accumulated wisdom. Most of the interviewees are from the Southeast (mainly Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, District of Columbia, and West Virginia). The Project Director is Dr. Patrick W. Carlton, formerly an associate professor at VPI&SU but currently at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The UNLV website permits searching by race, state, gender, name, level, and retirement decade, and may be permit easier searching for issues surrounding desegregation in Virginia.
