Educational Leadership and Declining Enrollments.
Mayhew, Lewis B.; And Others
This book is a report of a major curriculum revision undertaken by the faculty in educational administration in the School of Education, Stanford University. Sensing the educational needs of the 1970's and 1980's, the Stanford faculty pondered the kinds of administrative services likely to be needed and suggested one model that might have applicability beyond Stanford. The curriculum revision was conducted in the context of changes in education for the professions generally, changes detected in professional education, and recent policy analyses and pronuncements regarding all of American education. Part 1 contains the rationale for a new program in educational administration at Stanford, as well as an indication as to how a number of critical issues were resolved. Part 2 presents papers and summaries of papers prepared for an Invitational Conference held at Stanford in January 1974. This conference was intended as a means of obtaining reactions from the field of educational administration to what the Stanford faculty was proposing. The appendix presents a set of guidelines and course descriptions for the new program in educational administration as envisioned by the faculty after its curriculum study. (Author)
