The Alberta Leadership Course for School Principals -- A History and an Evaluation.
Bergen, J. J.
This study records the historical background and investigates the value of the leadership course as perceived by former members of the course. The leadership course was initiated as an attempt to improve the quality of leadership at the school level, thereby improving educational opportunities for provincial students. The study report contents (1) examine the need for inservice leadership education; (2) provide a history and development of the leadership course; (3) discuss the value of the leadership course to participants and school systems; and (4) comment on the strengths and weaknesses of the purposes, organization, and activities of the leadership course. A related document, EA 004 488, describes the 1971 leadership course. (Photographs may reproduce poorly.) (Author/JF)
