Hello Alan,

unfortunately I don't understand why "principle" is wrong.

Would you please explain this to me.

Many thanks!

Hello Lenchen. Being the Principal of a school is a titled position.

A principle is the way one acts, or how they are regarded by another person.

"He/She is a person of high principles."

Kitos.
