Emergent Influences from Other Nations on Administrator Training in the United States.
Culbertson, Jack
This paper highlights indicators of the growth in administrator training in the Commonwealth and Europe, research and training developments in these nations important to administrator preparation in the U.S., and international influences affecting administrator preparation in the future. Growth of administrator training in the Commonwealth and Europe is evidenced by the increase in institutions involved in administrator preparation, expansion of professional associations concerned with educational administration, and the development of new scholarly journals. Innovative staff development programs for educational administrators are being developed in the Commonwealth and European nations. Major professional development programs are unfolding in Sweden and Australia, and significant materials are being developed in Germany. These programs could have great influence on American practice as could the contrasting approaches to educational administration research evident in Germany and England. The marked growth in administrator study and preparation in European and Commonwealth nations has already influenced the learnings of professionals in the U.S. and promises to have more impact in the future.
