The Humanities in Preparing Educational Administrators.
Farquhar, Robin H.
Three major rationales characterize the literature dealing with the use of humanities instruction in preparing educational administrators. These rationales focus on (1) the general liberalization of the administrator, (2) the values and purpose-defining skills of the administrator, and (3) the creative and analytical skills of the administrator. Although most of the literature advocates inclusion of the humanities in educational administrator training programs, few such programs exist. Among existing programs, four of which are described in detail, the emphasis appears to be on the values approach. Most of the implementation problems inherent in these humanities programs have been resolved, but finance and evaluation remain particularly troublesome. A 56-item bibliography of related literature is included. (RA)
