Problems in Training and Utilizing Urban Education Leadership.
Lutz, Frank W., Ed.; Ramsey, Margaret A., Ed.
The positions expressed reflect several perspectives on the university-urban district cooperative leadership program carried out by Pennsylvania State University and the Philadelphia school district. The statements are made by students now holding positions as high school assistant principal, elementary principal, elementary assistant principal, administrative assistant to the district superintendent, and special program director. In addition, views of the program are expressed by a person who left the district and later returned, a person who returned and later left, the central offices director of staff leadership, the university program codirectors, and a district superintendent who worked with many of the students while they were interns. All agree on the overall success of the program. There are problems, however: there was a lack of organizational commitment; the program rested on the individual commitments of a few individuals in each organization; and the program did not prepare persons to solve specific problems.
