New Dimensions in School Board Leadership; A Seminar Report and Workbook (Chicago, Illinois, July 9-12, 1969).
Dickinson, William E., Ed.
A 4-day seminar, funded by ESEA Title III, studied the appropriate role of the American school board in the present climate of change, and the future role of the school board. Educational authorities were asked to prepare position papers for the seminar and persons with experience at the local board level were invited to respond candidly to all seminar presentations. Part I of this report contains six papers prepared for the seminar, covering such topics as problems of decentralization, fiscal policies, urban schools, and school board leadership. Eight broad ideas on new requirements for effective leadership are offered for consideration by the educational leadership community. Part II is a workbook that provides topics and quotations for further discussion. (MF)
