Perspectives Concerning In-Service Education for Educational Administrators.
Frasure, Kenneth
The usefulness of inservice opportunities for school administrators have sometimes been perceived differently by professors and superintendents. To explore whether these differences might be related to such things as years of service, metropolitan or nonmetropolitan location, and professional participation in a superintendency preparation program, a list of 20 ways for universities to serve practicing school superintendents was mailed to 140 professors of administration and 140 superintendents in New York State. The order of their preferences for the 20 items was recorded along with differences in perception that resulted from the above items. While there was general agreement among professors and administrators on the rank order of the items, results tend to confirm the idea that perception differs between individuals and groups as they view a process from different environmental positions. More experienced professors and superintendents tend to agree more fully than less experienced members of these groups. Younger professors, those from schools offering a superintendency program, and those from urban areas were found to place relatively more emphasis on administrative theory. Further study is needed to determine reasons for the discrepancies in points of view. (TT)
