The Simulation of an Urban School System for Use in Preparing Educational Administrators. Final Report
Blough, John A.; And Others
The University Council for Educational Administration (UCES) conducted meetings throughout the country during the late sixties and came to the conclusion that both the experience background of professors and the limited number of conceptual and methodological tools available to them stand in the way of providing effective inservice and preservice programs for educational administrators. The project described in this report, arising out of this general problem, was designed to simulate an urban school system and had two general objectives: to develop several sets of instructional materials for immediate use in administrator preparation, and to develop plans that would provide bases for creating additional sets of materials. Chapter One of the report provides an overview of the project and a description of its rationale. Chapters Two, Three, and Four provide a brief discussion of the content and evaluation of each of the three multimedia sets of materials already developed. The next eight chapters describe plans for future simulations and provide information on the objectives of the simulations projected, their rationales, and their various components. Two chapters describing work achieved thus far in developing support materials basic to the use of simulations conclude the report. (Author/SH)
