Strengthening School Leadership.
Erlandson, David A.
This book begins with a look at current practice in administration. It then proposes a general problem-solving strategy to help administrators and supervisors with the array of difficulties that face them. The development of an administrative/supervisory team is proposed as a method of effectively implementing the problem-solving strategy. Following this, some specific procedures are presented for the team to follow in determining goals, making decisions, and determining task and training requirements. Finally, an overview is presented to provide the reader with a system for viewing and integrating these various procedures. This book is designed for the practitioner and attempts to join theory and practice. The procedures proposed have been field tested in a variety of large urban and suburban schools and in smaller suburban and parochial schools. (Author/IRT)
