Career Sponsorship in the School Superintendency. A Project Report.
Rose, Robert Louis
This study examines the practice of sponsorship in the selection process of public school superintendents. This active intervention facilitates the distribution of information concerning vacancies and brings selected individuals to the attention of appropriate agencies. The data used are relevant literature and semistructured tape-recorded interviews with 17 sponsors and 4 sponsorees. Sponsorship as a focus for analysis raises four questions related to the career of the public school superintendent: (1) Who are the persons who provide the career intervention? (2) Who are the selected individuals receiving the career support of a sponsor? (3) What kind of intervention is involved? and (4) What are the results of this intervention? Sponsors, sponsorees, and the consequences of sponsorship in the area of educational administration are examined. (MF)
