The Training of School Administrators and Supervisors.
This study develops an overview of current practices, problems, and trends in the preparation of school administrators in various countries. Related aspects of preparation, such as administrator recruitment and selection, are also considered. Data for the study were gathered through examination of documentary materials related to the duties and training of educational administrators. Since no sampling procedures were used, generalizations presented in the report do not relate to a specified population of educational systems, and no inferences can be made about the relative distribution of specific practices. Following a brief introductory chapter, chapter 2 examines the organizational structure of educational systems in various countries. Chapter 3 outlines some categories of educational administrators, their major functions, and the distribution of personnel in selected educational systems. Chapter 4 discusses policies and practices governing the qualifications of administrative personnel. Chapter 5 examines approaches to the preservice and inservice training of administrators. Chapter 6 considers various issues related to the training of administrators, and chapter 7 presents a number of proposals and recommendations for future consideration. (Author/JG)
