The Dilemma of the School Superintendent.
Dykes, Archie R.
School superintendents constrained by an administrative ideology that is obsolete face a dilemma in responding to the social and cultural changes currently taking place in American society. For the emergent role of the school superintendent to be consonant with societal change, four propositions are suggested: (1) Greater power and influence should be added to both the administrative and leadership dimensions of his role, (2) his values and behavior should become increasingly democratic, (3) his role should become more political in character, and (4) his efforts should be increasingly directed towards the fostering and advocating of innovation.
