Abstract

This study investigated the attitudes of building principals toward the desirability of online pre-service teacher preparation programs. Two hundred principals in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio completed questionnaires and expressed apprehension about teacher dispositions and the "social" aspects of teaching that may be compromised in an online program, as well as the general ethicality surrounding online courses. If principals are to ultimately acknowledge the legitimacy of online teacher preparation and the marketability of its candidates, the degree-granting institutions must address these concerns and actively seek the input of administrators in program design.
