Critical Tasks of School Principals in Student Teaching Programs.
Nelson, Walter A.
The research purpose of this investigation called for determining if varying concepts of the principals' functions in the administration of student teaching programs existed among those elementary and secondary school principals, superintendents, and directors of student teaching involved with programs in selected, accredited institutions in Washington and Oregon; and what these concepts were, as perceived by the respondent groups. Considerable consistency was observed among the respondent groups in the rankings. Approval and consistency ratings indicate that acceptable behavioral patterns for principals in the administration of student teaching programs are identifiable. In general, such tasks appear to exist at the local building level, to be concerned with efficient administration practices, and involved with human relations rather than evaluative aspects of the program. A 23-item bibliography is included. (Author/WM)
