Follow-Up of School Management Training (USU).
National Swedish Board of Education, Stockholm.
The purposes of the school management training project were to study the outcome of experimental activities in the field of school management training; to describe the various forms of training occurring in the different training sectors; and to study the outcome of these various forms of training. The two-year training consisted of training courses, periods of home study, and community practice. Basic principles and desirable effects were formulated and later evaluated by the participants. Areas of focus were participant control, cooperation, interchange of experience, work-relieving measures, variegated and activating working procedures, studies by each trainee of his own school, a problem-solving attitude, links between training courses and home study periods, contact with the local community, contact with the training team, and the ability to give and take criticism. Desirable effects were transformation of personality, of the vocational role, and of the individual school. While a majority of respondents stated that they had personally experienced behavioral and attitudinal changes, only half felt that positive change had occurred in their professional role or in their schools. Nonetheless, the participants were generally satisfied and felt that the training had been meaningful. (Author/JK)
