Changing Supervision for Changing Times.
Leeper, Robert R., Ed.
This collection of four addresses considers some important issues for educational supervisors in a society undergoing rapid social changes. Jacqueline Grennan Wexler suggests that open communication in a climate of mutual independence and responsibility among educational administrators, students, teachers, and taxpayers is a possible solution to turmoil in contemporary education. Harry S. Broudy treats the school as a social system and outlines three major areas of stress in contemporary education: teachers vs taxpayers, black vs white cultures, and students vs administrators. Richard L. Foster challenges supervisors to be leaders of educational revolts by proposing new curricula and methods of school organization to make educational institutions relevant to contemporary problems. Muriel Crosby chides supervisors for failing to accept responsibility in the leadership of their own profession, and recommends the professionalization of supervision by establishing a body of theory and practice pertinent to that field.
