"The Way It Could Be."
Culbertson, Jack
Underlying projections for the development of preparatory programs for educational administrators is the assumption that differences between education and business will be eroded by growing interaction between the two sectors. Leaders in both sectors are thinking increasingly in common terms of "investment,""input-output,""social responsibility," and "social benefit." Flow of management talent between the two sectors represents another key point on the education-business interface. In both sectors, goal setting, based upon research, will be increasingly influenced by interaction between education and business. In accord with these important trends, those responsible for planning programs for the training of educational administrators must (1) set new objectives for leadership development; (2) adopt a perspective which is both national and future oriented; and (3) incorporate activities adapted from the private sector, including identification of manpower needs, a national computer based inventory of available administrative leadership and support personnel, improved allocation of training resources, program design incorporating systematic evaluation, and training objectives more clearly oriented to specific administrative responsibilities and qualifications.
