Training Mexican American School Principals: An Analysis of a Program's Hits and Misses.
Lynch, Patrick D.
A National Institute of Mental Health project was initiated in 1964 at the University of New Mexico to prepare educational administrators to become community change agents. The 10 fellows appointed to the program received training in applications of the social sciences to administration, with concentration on concepts of community organization and structure, culture, social factors, change, power, and the nature and dynamics of organizations. Internships in communities and State agencies provided opportunities for the fellows to observe, and be a part of, the change process. Although a few of the 10 fellows returned to public school positions following completion of their programs, by 1968 none of them were public school administrators. (BR)
