New Approaches to Recruitment and Selection of Educational Administrators. ERIC/CEM-UCEA Series on Administrator Preparation. ERIC/CEM State-of-the-Knowledge Series, Number Eighteen. UCEA Monograph Series, Number Five.
Stout, Robert T.
In this monograph, the author claims there is a need for administrators who are responsive to legitimate demands for educational change. He reviews the shortcomings of contemporary American educational systems and traditional procedures for selecting and preparing administrators -- a group noted for its size and homogeneity. The author contends that recruiting innovative personnel is difficult because so little being known of the change process, the likelihood of conflict is great. Nonetheless, there exists a need for diversity of educational goals. He discussess the role that is played by universities attempting to design training programs for producing a variety of administrator types and explains the necessity of their having to recruit from nontraditional sources, i.e., from the ranks of "unsuccessful" teachers or nonteachers. New criteria for selecting trainees are proposed. A selective bibliography is appended. (M)
