Rethinking Educational Leadership Preparation Need: A Central Nervous System for Education.
Cunningham, Luvern L.
This paper discusses two related needs in the field of educational leadership preparation: the need for a greater clinical emphasis in administrator preparation programs, and the need for a national network of leadership learning centers that would act as a "central nervous system" for education. Increased emphasis on clinical learnings would spur development of the specific leadership skills that are necessary in today's educational environment. A central nervous system linking various leadership learning centers would improve communication and information dissemination between centers and would help coordinate their effort to create an orchestrated approach to leadership improvement.
