Some Thoughts About Theory in Educational Administration--1975.
Griffiths, Daniel E.
UCEA Review, v17 n1 pp12-18,28 Oct 1975
This article presents a brief discussion of issues related to the relationship between administrative theory and the practice of educational administration. In particular, the discussion focuses on four questions: 1) Are administrative theories particular or general? 2) Is theory a guide to action for administrators? 3) What is the place of theory in the preparation of practitioners? and 4) What should be the new directions in theory development? The author concludes his discussion by arguing that administrative theory has not thus far achieved its promise of providing a solid base for the practice of educational administration. (JG)
