This booklet summarizes the major findings of a comprehensive followup of the original interns in the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) Administrative Internship Project for Secondary School Improvement. In 1962, the NASSP sought support from the Fund for Advancement of Education for an administrative internship pilot project that was, in effect, a design for leadership. The project aimed to develop principals who would assume more vigorous instructional leadership of schools and become the agents of change. The proposed program also aimed to help innovative schools demonstrate and advance further improvements in secondary education. The project design was triangular, built around three main groups of participants--the interns who would become educational leaders, the schools where they would work, and the universities that would supervise the interns and work with the schools.
