Principals play a significant role in schools and impact many aspects of the educational experience. Principal turnover, especially in high-needs schools, has a detrimental effect on schools, specifically on student achievement. One type of educational experience that seeks to serve students of low-income backgrounds and from historically under-served populations are schools run by charter management organizations (CMOs). Previous research has reported that women hold positions of educational leadership far less in proportion to men given the high number of women in teaching positions. Therefore, in order to more fully understand the principals in CMOs, issues of gender must be explored. The purpose of this study was to use a feminist perspective to create a better understanding of principal stability in schools run by CMOs. (Abstract shortened by ProQuest.)
