Perspectives on Educational Administration and the Behavioral Sciences.
Charters, W. W., Jr.; And Others
The papers in this publication were presented at a 3-day staff conference of the Center for the Advanced Study of Educational Administration (CASEA). The objectives of the conference were to (1) assess the actual and potential contributions of various academic disciplines to the program area of the Center, (2) evaluate the field of administration as an area of academic interest, (3) discuss existing deficiencies in research and practice, and (4) examine the relationships of educational institutions to the larger social and cultural environments in which they are embedded. The seven papers that contributed to the achievement of these objectives presented the following topics -- (1) the emerging science of administration as revealed by the literature in a variety of academic disciplines, (2) an analysis of the deficiencies of current research in educational administration and the correctives needed to produce research of high quality, (3) educational administration as viewed from the perspective of the sociology of education, (4) means to develop a social psychology of educational administration, (5) the use of analytical techniques employed in economics to make decisionmaking in education more rational and systematic, (6) cultural factors in the educational process, and (7) the schools as transmission agents for political values.
