Administrator's Bill of Rights.
Shannon, Thomas A.
This booklet discusses the legal limitations and restrictions governing contracts between school administrators and their employers and offers a ten-item bill of rights designed to ensure a fair measure of job security for administrators. After noting that an administrator has no legal recourse when his employment contract is not renewed, the author examines three possible responses to an attempt to demote or dismiss an administrator who is still under contract. The author argues that the grounds for nonrenewal, dismissal, or demotion of school administrators should be clearly articulated and recommends adoption of his Administrator's Bill of Rights at all levels of the education profession.
