There has been little research regarding adverse employment actions against public school principals. Principals are dismissed, demoted, or transferred, not only for low accountability test scores but for a variety of reasons that may or may not affect test scores. The legal ramifications of these adverse employment actions have resulted in various court rulings.
The purpose of this research was to examine adverse employment actions against public school principals to determine fact patterns, outcomes, and trends. Cases studied from 1982–2009 provided the basis for the development of principles to advise district-level administrators as they contend with the legal consequences of administering adverse employment actions against problem principals.
