The Predecisional Process in Educational Administration: A Philosophical Analysis.
Joseph, Ellis A.
The main purpose of this study is to make more readily understandable the relationship between the educational administrator and knowledge by and in the mode of connaturality. A review of the literature in educational administration reveals that this relationship has not previously been considered. Certain studies emphasize the importance of desirable habits that aid the administrator in performing his duties with considerable facility. None of these sources, however, indicates the possibility that certain virtues or habits must become co-natured in order for the administrator to fulfill his duties. This work considers such a possibility and shows that there is an important relationship between educational administration and administrative knowledge that is not through the conceptual, logical, and discursive use of reason.
