The climax of these sanctions is evident when considering the repercussions it places on school administrators. Such is the case that it provides parents with alternative schools away from those which fail to meet AYP. Here, parents are given permission to transfer their children to a school of their choice within the district that meets the requirements.
The next set of AYP sanctions falls under the title corrective actions. The first section of correction action employs the same approach as that implemented in school improvement except for the major modifications realized in the areas of curriculum, leadership, or other strategies. In this premise, a principle leading a school that has consistently failed to meet the AYP for four years on account of low subgroup scores is at risk of losing his/her job even when the school is still better in all other tested areas. Under such kind of laws, that are well written, thousands of low performing schools could in theory lose their principles following the subgroup rule. Corrective 4 actions II addresses schools that fail to meet AYP in a consecutive five to six years. The remedy for such schools is total reconstruction of staff, privatization, charting and other related government changes (Decker, 2008). Schools that meet the AYP target for two successive years are exited from this cycle. As a measure to boost openness in the AYP and NCLB for two successive years, the federal lawmakers have authorized that respective states maintain their accountability to the public by publishing their school report cards. The report cards maintain information drawn from all schools in a particular district and incorporate information on proficiency/ AYP rates, teachers professional qualification , data by sub group, and establishes schools in dare need of improvement(McKinney, 2008).

This has in turn caused a performance pressure among school leaders as different aspects of the society increase their expectations from learning institutions. Since the performance of learning institutions primarily depends on the quality of leadership, then it becomes important to evaluate the causes of stress among current school leaders.
They are known for their strength in character whenever difficult times arrive. They are able to stand the pains of child-bearing and carry the strength to attend to their diverse and difficult tasks. Nevertheless, behind their strengths, they often seem fragile with their physical built and emotional sensitivity.
Principals often face pressure from various angles, both inside and outside of the actual school community in which they are employed (Roberson & Matthews, 1988). They put in long days, including evening and weekend hours. The work load is quite staggered, and the average work week is typically 55-60 hours, with little relief in sight (Torelli & Gmelch, 1992; Donaldson & Hausman, 1997).
The second idea was the perceiving of a utilitarian value emphasizing that students were not as negative toward social studies as indicated in researches made before.My instructional environment as well as my interwoven opinions of the author's research takes place in a middle school consisting of 7th and 8th grade classes.
