Research in Educational Administration in Canada.
Holdaway, E. A.
This paper on educational administration in Canada first discusses overall organization and then details data about staff and student research from 1973-77. Most school research, it says, is concerned with staff personnel, curriculum and instruction, assessment and evaluation, and finance and business management. Graduate student research makes a major contribution to the total research effort, both through theses and major papers. The paper examines criticisms about and difficulties in conducting research in educational administration, especially with respect to funding, research initiative, climate of support, communications, cross-sectional studies, decision-making links, comparative studies, quantitative research, ethics, policy research, and methodology. Research in educational administration could be improved, the paper concludes, by giving more attention to structure, functions and types of research, climate of support, comparative studies, programmatic research, and policy research.
