A Study of Professors of Educational Administration: Problems and Prospects of an Applied Academic Field.
Campbell, Roald F.; Newell, L. Jackson
The quality of the professiorate is the critical determinant of the quality of the knowledge base, preparatory programs, and even practice in the profession of educational administration. The authors hope that this study will lead to a better assessment of the strengths and weaknesses now represented in the professoriate and to the implementation of steps to build on the strengths and to correct the weaknesses. Data are presented on the attitudes, backgrounds, and qualifications of the professors. An examination of the role orientations among faculty attempted to assess the degree of association with personal, professional, and institutional characteristics. A conceptual framework underlying the investigation was an adaptation of the notion of cosmopolitan and local role orientations among college faculty. The adaptation was the inclusion of a hypothesized third orientation among professors of educational administration, an identification with practitioners, and the field of practice. (Authors/WM)
