Preparation of Principals. The Best of ERIC on Educational Management Number 81.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
This annotated bibliography reviews 12 publications on preparation of principals. Of these, three (entries 1, 7, and 11) concern internships: essential elements thereof, a proposed "critical incident" technique for internships, and a practicum program in South Carolina. Three of the articles (2, 5, and 9) focus on models or approaches to the training of principals: a model based on contingency theory, techniques based on the decision sciences, and a discussion of the three broad elements in the structure of educational administration training programs. The third entry reviews a book of guidelines for preparation of school administrators issued by the American Association of School Administrators, and the fourth is a description of the Principals' Center at Harvard. The four remaining articles (entries 6, 8, 10, and 12) cover various aspects of inservice training for professionals: a status report, a training program in clinical supervision from Chicago, a discussion of inservice needs, and an instructional management training program in Mississippi developed in conjunction with the implementation of an outcome-based education format.
