Supervision and Curriculum: Improvements for Transition.
Purpel, David E.
The basic thesis of this paper is that less hassles, less interference, new cultural values, and current social trends make "now" a good time for improving schools. The author suggests that change is slow in coming because administrators are reluctant to take action while they are still in the throes of a dilemma over whether schools should reflect or try to change society. The paper discusses the role conflict confronting a professional educator who is expected to be inspirational and toughminded, idealistic and realistic, and dreamer and pragmatist simultaneously. The paper concludes with some specific recommendations aimed at humanizing the schools. (Author/DN)
