New and Emerging Problems in School Adminstration.
TenHaken, Richard E.
This paper examines a number of problems facing school board members and educational administrators today and suggests some possible approaches to addressing those problems effectively. In considering each problem area, the author emphasizes its impact on the activities and responsibilities of school officials and discusses concrete steps they can take in response. Nine specific problems are discussed, including the impact of declining school enrollments, the repercussions of federal requirements banning sex discrimination in education, conflict between school board members and administrators and teachers, financial problems, energy problems, increasing government involvement in school decision-making, the impact of a changing economy and job market on education, changing public attitudes toward schools, and lack of effective communication between school personnel, students, and the public.
