The Administrator's Role in Educational Linkage.
Lipham, James M.
In examining the linkage aspects of the administrator's role, one must seek answers to three basic questions: What leadership functions must be performed by the administrator? What supports are needed by the administrator? What training is required of the administrator? Answers to these questions should enhance the understandings, skills, and attitudes of practicing administrators who are, as internal change agents, providing leadership in educational improvement, and improve and strengthen relationships with external linking agents who provide assistance to the local schools. A section of this chapter is devoted to each of the three basic questions. (Author/IRT)
