Trends in Administrative Practice in Education.
Nunnery, Michael Y.
The four trends chosen for discussion in this paper represent the impressions of the observer and are selected because of their perceived relevance for persons having a major interest in educational administrator preparation programs. The author observes that (1) educational administration and governance in the public sector are becoming increasingly entwined with general government and public administration; (2) the school board-superintendent team, which has been viewed by the laity as soverign and in fact has exercised considerable power, is becoming increasingly powerless; (3) the decisionmaking process in local school districts is becoming increasingly more open, conflict-laden, and time-consuming; and (4) the traditional relationship between practitioners and professors wherein professors solved real-world problems for practitioners is changing to a relationship wherein practitioners and professors work as equals in problem solving.
