This group of three papers addresses the issues of the supply of competent administrators, their education, and the management needs they should be providing for elementary and secondary education in Oklahoma. The first paper proposes improvements in the selection process for school superintendents. Using input from school administrators, school boards, and the Oklahoma State Department of Education, recommendations are made to improve the screening of superintendent candidates. A second paper considers which features of superintendency preparation programs could be implemented by Oklahoma's universities to meet the present constraints of certification and the demands of school districts. The final paper cites educational programs required by current and anticipated social circumstances in Oklahoma. After exploring alternative management arrangements to meet educational needs, specific recommendations are made for changes in management and delivery systems. (JW)
