Curriculum Reform in Educational Administration: Fantasy or Frustration.
Noonan, Maureen; Underwood, Julie K.
A comprehensive curriculum reform effort to improve the administrator preparation program at the University of Wisconsin at Madison is described in this paper. Stages in the shared, reflective review process are described, which include: (1) development of a conceptual schema based on Robert L. Katz's framework to identify program knowledge bases, skills, and attributes; (2) development of a three-sphere framework to examine curriculum content; and (3) "mapping the curriculum" to create a new core sequence. A conclusion is that benefits of preparing educational leaders outweigh the frustrations of the restructuring process. Attachments include the Katz conceptual framework, definition of terms, three-sphere framework, an example of "mapping the curriculum," and course proposal. (13 references) (LMI)
