Teaching Certificates Earned Online and Hiring Practices of High School Principals

Jonathan Adams


A national survey of United States high school principals (n = 2,187) was used to assess the acceptability of job applicant qualifications that included degrees earned either online, partly online, or in a residential teacher-training program.
