Charles F. Kettering Foundation and /I/D/E/A Mission in Educational Leadership and Management. Final Report.
Merrimack Education Center, Chelmsford, MA.
This report describes a program sponsored by the Charles F. Kettering Foundation that attempted to help practicing educational administrators take advantage of available materials and resources to improve their leadership and management skills. The program centered around four Educational Management Development Centers consisting of school districts working alone, with other school districts, or with a nearby university. Each center was expected to search out and test new approaches to improving leadership and management in the context of operating schools and school districts. The overall aim of the program was to monitor the search and development efforts of the various centers and to analyze the reasons for their success or lack of success. The report briefly recounts the history of the program and presents some general conclusions based on the experiences of the centers. The appendix contains an interim review of the program that was prepared near the end of its first year, as well as a summary of a related effort to establish a National Collegial Learning Team on School District Based Administrator Renewal Program, which was made up of representatives of six state departments of education.
