THE EMERGENT ROLE OF ADMINISTRATORS AND THE IMPLICATIONS FOR TEACHER-ADMINISTRATOR RELATIONSHIPS.
DYKES, ARCHIE R.
THE AUTHOR VIEWS THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR'S ROLE AS A RESPONSE TO SOCIAL AND CULTURAL CHANGES SHAPING CONTEMPORARY HUMAN LIFE. FOUR ASPECTS OF THIS EMERGENT ROLE ARE OUTLINED--(1) THE ADMINISTRATOR WILL BECOME STRONGER AND MORE INFLUENTIAL IN BOTH ADMINISTRATIVE AND LEADERSHIP DIMENSIONS OF HIS ROLE, (2) ADMINISTRATIVE VALUES AND BEHAVIOR WILL BECOME MORE DEMOCRATIC, (3) THE ADMINISTRATOR'S ROLE WILL BECOME MORE POLITICAL IN CHARACTER, ESPECIALLY WITH RESPECT TO POLICY FORMULATION AND THE SECURING OF SUFFICIENT PUBLIC SUPPORT, AND (4) THE FOSTERING OF INNOVATION WILL BE AN INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT FUNCTION OF THE ADMINISTRATOR. IMPLICATIONS OF THIS DEVELOPING ADMINISTRATOR ROLE INCLUDE (1) INCREASED TEACHER INVOLVEMENT IN EDUCATIONAL DECISION MAKING, (2) ADMINISTRATIVE ASSUMPTION OF A MORE IMPORTANT ROLE IN RELATIONSHIPS WITH TEACHER GROUPS, (3) INCREASED FOCUS OF TEACHER-ADMINISTRATOR RELATIONSHIPS UPON COOPERATIVE GOAL ESTABLISHMENT, AND (4) REPLACEMENT OF ORTHODOX ADMINISTRATIVE IDEOLOGY IN TEACHER-ADMINISTRATOR RELATIONSHIPS WITH A MORE DEMOCRATIC IDEOLOGY. THE COMPLETE DOCUMENT "COLLECTIVE NEGOTIATIONS AND EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION," OF WHICH THIS IS CHAPTER 2, IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY COUNCIL FOR EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION, 65 SOUTH OVAL DRIVE, COLUMBUS, OHIO 43210, AND FROM DR. ROY B. ALLEN, COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS, FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS 72701, FOR $2.50. (JK)
