Training for the Principalship: Institution, Program, Professor.
McCleary, Lloyd E.
The role of those who train educational administrators is largely shaped by influences emanating from the training requirements or nature of the program to be provided and the institutional setting in which that training occurs. Present concerns in these areas are producing a good deal of questioning about the professorial role itself. Radical revisions are needed in programs, institutional arrangements, and the professorial role. Results of a questionnaire indicate a push toward (1) competency based training, however that may be defined; (2) extern or off-campus programs with established principals, usually two days per month for credit; (3) block time for teaching integrated content intensively, usually team taught; (4) group process experiences; and (5) individualization. In terms of instructional methodologies, the survey indicates a changing orientation in favor of the case study and the internship, field projects, simulation, and surveys. There is a need for a study of the institutional arrangements for program development and the conditions of the professorship itself, and for emphasis on improving the institutional conditions that will permit systematic exploitation of the promising practices now available.
