Where Will LEAD Lead? An Update on My LEAD Research.
Issues in the future of a federal collaborative program, Leadership in Educational Administration Development (LEAD), are discussed in this paper. Problems attributed to LEAD are its antagonistic posture to educational administration programs in higher education and political conflicts of interest. Methodology involved analysis of successful LEAD applications from the U.S. Department of Education. Other criticisms of LEAD include its negative effect on enrollment in university programs; its business-oriented management; assessment practices that contribute to sexual and racial discrimination; an anti-intellectual stance; and lack of research. The recommendation is made for supporting higher education administrator preparation programs. (LMI)
