The Selection and Appointment of School Heads. A Manual of Suggestions to Boards of Trustees and Candidates. Second Edition.
Miller, Frank R.
This publication is intended primarily to guide private school trustees in the task of finding, selecting, and hiring a new headmaster or superintendent for their school. However, part of the content is aimed at prospective candidates for such jobs, so the booklet has some value for them, as well. The booklet is organized in two major sections. Section 1 is addressed to the board of trustees and offers specific suggestions on how to recruit and evaluate applicants for the headmaster position. Section 2 is addressed to candidates for the job of headmaster and discusses various points they should consider in deciding whether to pursue or accept such a job. The appendix presents actual examples of various documents, letters, and descriptions that illustrate key steps in the hiring of a private school headmaster. (JG)
