THE CROFT PROFESSIONAL GROWTH PROGRAM.
FINN, JAMES D.
PRESSURES ON SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS EMANATE FROM SUCH SOURCES AS TELEVISION, TEACHING MACHINES, AND FILMS. THE ADMINISTRATOR SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE PROMISES OF THE FUTURE AND THE BEST OF THE PAST, WHICH CAN GUIDE HIM IN LEADERSHIP. IN THE YEARS TO COME, ADMINISTRATIVE OPERATIONS, THEORY, AND ATTITUDES WILL HAVE TO CHANGE RADICALLY. TOO MANY TEACHERS CONSIDER NEW TEACHING DEVICES AS BEING UNRELATED TO EACH OTHER AND OF NO SIGNIFICANCE IN INSTRUCTION. CHANGES IN ADMINISTRATIVE PATTERNS ARE NEEDED IN THE LOGISTICS OF INSTRUCTION WITH TRAINED PERSONNEL TO SUPPORT THIS INSTRUCTION. THE REVISION OF THE SCHOOL BUDGET IS AN ESSENTIAL BUT DIFFICULT PART OF THESE CHANGES. THE SCHOOL PRINCIPAL HAS A KEY LEADERSHIP ROLE AND GREAT CURRICULUM RESPONSIBILITIES. THE PRINCIPAL SHOULD ACQUIRE THE FUNCTIONAL KNOWLEDGE OF ALL ELEMENTS OF TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE. ADEQUATE INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORT AND HIGH CALIBER SERVICE SHOULD BE PROVIDED FOR TEACHERS IN ORDER TO ACQUAINT THEM WITH THE USEFULNESS OF TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGES. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "NEW DIMENSIONS OF INSTRUCTION," VOLUME 7, NUMBER 4, 1961.
