Assessing the Need of Elementary Principals for Continuing Education in Decision-Making.
Randall, Ruth E.
An assessment was made of the need for continuing education in decision-making as perceived by elementary principals in the Fifty Large Cities School Districts. Questionnaires measuring demonstrated skill in decision-making and interest in increasing skill in decision-making provided data for analysis. Conclusions were that elementary principals were interested in increasing their skill in decision-making; the degree of interest differed according to the principal's level of educational preparation, age, years of experience as an elementary principal, and sex; interest was greatest for skills directly involving other people and for evaluating the effectiveness of decisions made; and continuing education provided by local school districts was most valuable.
