A crisis budget scenario at play in the Allentown, Pa., school district calls for the four smallest elementary schools to share principals -- with one top administrator being responsible for two schools. George White, professor of educational leadership at Lehigh University, said school security and safety likely would not be affected by the change if policies are followed, but the principals would face several challenges, including identifying with the culture of each school. Some parents and teachers expressed concerns about the plan.
