The Independent School Trustee Handbook.
Parkman, Francis; Springer, E. Laurence
This handbook takes an up-to-date look at the complex issues of trusteeship and school governance. Although addressed to trustees of independent schools, it contains valuable insights and suggestions for all who serve on boards, in and out of education. The main topics covered are "Governing Boards,""The Board and the Head of the School," and "Selecting a New Head and Getting Him Started." Material new to this edition includes comments on the nature of trusteeship, orientation of new trustees, evaluation of the school and of the head's performance, and contractual relationships with the head.
