Abstract: The purpose of the study was (1) to determine if a relationship existed between the desegregation of the public schools and the percentage of black high school principals employed in the thirty-one selected school districts in North Carolina from 1967 through 1977; (2) if a relationship existed, to determine its nature and scope as well as what its implications meant for future employment of black educators; and (3) for opportunities needed for further development. Specifically, the study was conducted to: 1. Identify black high school principals who had been displaced because of school integration. 2. Obtain insights into the major reasons for displacements. 3. Gather information about the qualifications, certification status, age, family status, and sex of those who had been displaced. 4. Determine if legal problems had arisen from displacement of black high school principals. 5. Determine how principals who had been displaced were subsequently employed. 6. Seek information that would provide a basis for preventive and remedial action to assist displaced black principals in efforts to qualify for new assignments in education and related fields.
