Changing Behaviors and Values: The Educational Administrator in American Society.
Blackmon, C. Robert, Ed.
The introductory chapter of this document describes the Anderson Center for Personal Development, of Bowling Green (Ohio) University, as a vehicle for the study of morals, standards, and ethics. Sponsored by the center, this publication contains 12 papers by 13 authors that focus on the educational administrator and values. Special emphasis is placed on the changing role of the administrator; the humanities in educational administrator education; human values and educational leadership; values and value relationships of elementary school principals; educational and administrative values, goals, priorities, and their implementation; values, behaviors, and decision making; and attitudes of prospective principals. An outline of the group discussions on values at the 1968 National Conference of Professors of Educational Administration is included. A two-part comparison of public school administrators with professors of educational administration ends the report. The section includes a substantive analysis of score comparisons on a leadership attitude scale and a brief report of a second study that compares members of the two groups by their responses to a survey instrument on their values orientations.
