Dr. Glynn W. B. Sharpe

Abstract
Leaders and individuals in positions of power can encounter many obstacles when making and enforcing rules and values. Issues of gender can also convolute leadership issues. The following paper presents an examination of the issues and confusion that have been experienced within a school and community. More specifically, the academic issues are discussed with respect to the administrative style of the school principal and the resulting upheaval that this style has produced. Moreover, the impacts that the principal’s gender may have had on the academic community and the many barriers women face as principals are also addressed. The paper concludes with suggested recommendations that could be implemented to assist the parties involved as they work towards a more harmonious learning environment.
