My first recommendation would be to do an EdD rather than a Phd if you want to work as a school administrator.

Agree w/EvolvedGradBlog above. Depends on what kind of administration you are interested in though. An EdD is the right degree if you are interested in yourself becoming an administrator, but if you are interested in *researching* school administration, a PhD is the right program. Which is it?

I am interested in researching school administration specifically female school administrators and challenges they face in a conservative Muslim society. As this is a new field for me though i have started reading but i am bit confused.

Ok. That sounds like a PhD is more appropriate than an EdD. You will want to search for articles that interest you related to your topic and then pay attention to the faculty members who are authors on those articles (look at all the authors--not just the first author). Good luck!

Thank you.As i am an international applicant so here in Pakistan education system is bit different than other countries , like here our supervisor gives us topic or we choose topic after a year of course work , there is no statement of purpose or statement of intent thing. My confusion is that while contacting a POI we just mention our interested research area or a topic .

Right. Most places here will expect students to at least have a general idea of the sub-topic they want to study. You don't need a research plan or even research question, but what you have formed is good enough and then maybe some specific ideas you *might* like to explore that you could talk about or relate to the faculty member you are interested in working with.
