Abstract

The aim of this study is to record the status of the elementary school principalship in the State of Utah during the 1951-1952 school year. The problem arose from a situation in which the writer, as President of the Utah Elementary School Principal's Association, was continually asked questions pertaining to the status of this group, and because there was a scarcity of current information available upon which to base reliable answers to these requests. This situation led to the formulation of the study herein presented--a survey of conditions as they existed in Utah during the 1951-1952 school year. It should reveal conditions as they were, and serve as a basis for their improvement by the elementary principals of Utah. It should also be helpful to the institutions in the state engaged in training administrators for this position.
