Claudia Navarro Corona, Graciela Cordero Arroyo

Resumen


El objetivo de este artículo es hacer un análisis temático de los estudios que se han realizado sobre el subdirector escolar en países anglosajones de 1970 a 2012. Con este fin, se hizo la búsqueda de literatura, se seleccionó y caracterizó el corpus de análisis y se hizo la categorización temática de los estudios. Los estudios se clasificaron en cinco categorías: funciones de la subdirección; rol de los subdirectores en la escuela; estudio del aprendizaje del puesto de la subdirección escolar; estudios de satisfacción en el trabajo del subdirector; y el puesto de subdirección como preparación para el trabajo en la dirección escolar. El estudio concluye que el enfoque de los trabajos ha transitado de un nivel descriptivo a uno más analítico sobre los roles de los subdirectores en la escuela, sus procesos de socialización y como un nivel de preparación para la siguiente etapa laboral.

Abstract

The aim of this article is to make a thematic analysis of the studies that have been conducted on the assistant principal in Anglo-Saxon countries from 1970 to 2012. To this end, the literature search was selected and the corpus of analysis was determined. Studies were classified into five thematic categories: tasks of the assistant principals; role of assistant principals in school; how this role is learned at school; studies of job satisfaction; and the assistant principal as the previous step to be principal. The study concludes that the focus of the work has passed a descriptive level to a more analytical one about the roles of assistant principals in school, socialization processes and the training step for the principals´ role.
