The paper reviews the literature on management training for personnel working in educational systems, with some specific consideration of ministries of education central offices, and Latin American educational management issues. Through a bibliographic essay, the following issues are dealt with: the nature of the managerial function, the humanistic trend in management, contempory educational issues influencing the managerial function, the management development process, the learning needs of educational managers, appropriate training methods for management development, and issues in the management of Latin American educational systems.
