Within recent years there has been an extensive development of public elementary education. In this development, the elementary school principal has come to exercise a significant influence. As an educator, as a public servant, and as a member of a profession, his importance is generally recognized. The functions and duties of the principal of an elementary school are numerous and varied, and the character of his position is such that the problems which come to him are almost as broad as the whole field of public education.-*- However, it is believed that the duties of the Negro elementary school principal in Texas vary in different schools because of the influence of the types of industries, size of school, socio-economic backgrounds of pupils, policies of the school district, the training of the principal himself, and other factors. The hypothesis to be tested in this study is, although the duties of principals may vary in large and small schools, there will be found more similarities of administrative, supervisory, and clerical duties existing among them than differences.
Statement of the Problem
The major purpose of this investigation is to determine the kinds of administrative, clerical, and supervisory duties performed by the Negro elementary school principals in Texas.
