School Administration: Challenge and Opportunity for Leadership.
Gorton, Richard A.
This book is directed to those individuals who are interested in developing a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities for leadership in school administration. The focus of the text is on principles and theories of administering and improving a school; however, many of the chapters are also relevant for other administrative levels. This is not a book that extols present administrative practices in the schools, but rather one that offers recommendations and suggestions for improving current practices. The major thrust of the book is toward leadership responsibilities and opportunities of the school administrator. The major headings under discussion are "Purpose/Direction/Accountability,""Elements of Administration,""Staff Personnel and Instructional/Curricular Leadership,""Student Problems, Services, and Activities,""The School and the Community," and "Career Considerations."
