Educational Renewal: An Inclusive, Process-Oriented Model of Leadership Development. An Occasional Paper Developed by the Project Kansas 76 Staff.
Sarthory, Joseph A.
This paper describes a leadership development model which departs radically from the traditional leader preparation programs. Leadership is perceived not as a complex of skills and characteristics accruing to an individual but as the initiation and maintenance of an ongoing process of self and organizational renewal. The process envisioned involves a consortium of various education agencies, including university and state department personnel, teachers, administrators, students, and community members. This broad involvement, plus the capability to institutionalize the process through program approval, certification, and accreditation procedures offers real promise for significant and lasting relevance and accountability. The renewal process would occur simultaneously in all the participating agencies, which would ensure continuing adaptability and flexibility to changing needs on the part of educators and those who prepare and certify them. The model offers an opportunity to institutionalize planned change across a broad spectrum from preparation to practice. (MBM)
