The Trials and Tribulations of a Rural Superintendent.
Tagg, Geoffrey J.
The rural superintendency offers unique challenges and insights into the educational process. Rural superintendents require a broader range of administrative training and skills than their urban counterparts, with a strong emphasis on interpersonal skills. The range of problems and daily activities encountered by the rural superintendent is virtually without limit, and as such is a true test of the individual's administrative capabilities. Not everyone is capable of successfully handling such a position, but those who do find a professionally rewarding experience second to none. (Author/BRR)
