Removing the Storm Clouds: Cooperative Leadership to Provide Constructive and Viable Solutions to Critical Problems in Education.
Hayes, Dale K.
Confusion in the ranks of educators must be reduced. The problems of instructional arrangements, in-service training programs, militancy, instructional resources, and overspecialization may all be met through the collective action of teachers, supervisors, and principals. In order to solve the problems facing schools and school districts because of changing cultural values, distribution of funds, and a credibility gap, schools and educators must (1) establish a cooperative leadership, (2) clarify school goals, (3) establish specific procedures for achieving goals, (4) define appropriate amounts of common and specialized learnings, (5) establish articulation patterns (level to level and subject to subject), (6) develop in-service programs peculiar to the local system, and (7) become community people not limited to school interests and contacts.
