Elementary School Principals: The Women in the Principal’s Office
Submitter: I came across this book in our collection. It is from 1991 and has never been checked out. There is so much wrong with this title. It sort of implies or assumes that principals are male and secretaries are female. Period. The subtitle even sounds kind of bad. There is no mention of technology in the book and one section is called “Jane of all trades.” So much has changed regarding student issues and laws over the last 20 years that this book is sorely outdated.
Holly: At first, I thought it was implying that all elementary school principals are female. Then I realized it isn’t a book about principals at all! There’s no reason for a school library to hang on to this one.
