International Perspective on the Preparation of Educational Administrators.
Andrews, John H. M.
Attempting to integrate the papers in this series on the preparation of educational administrators, this paper first reviews the conditions and critical issues that were presented in each paper. The author then proposes four models to describe the way school administrators are selected and trained, and applies these models to the countries and regions included in the symposium: Australia, Europe, Great Britain, South America, and North America. The models are distinguished from each other primarily on the basis of the pool from which administrators are selected and by the nature of the training provided. The four models are called the nonprofessional, the noneducational, the generic professional, and the specialist professional. Some possible implications of the models are examined. (Author/JM)
