Abstract:The findings confirmed consistent role conflict inherent in of the dual role position, which undermine the administrators' ability to meet the state mandate for the principal to serve as the school's instructional leader. Dual role administrators struggle with internal and external conflict due to the nature of their assignment and the multiple constituent groups with whom they work. The study recommends that the superintendent/principal position be eliminated and small rural schools unable to support required administrative positions should be consolidated with other local districts.
