Podemski, Richard S.
The National Level Internship Program is designed to give eight students at the doctoral level in educational administration the opportunity to work for a year in federal or private, special or general education agencies at the national level. The purpose is to provide training to a new generation of educational leaders at a time when the need to coordinate efforts in general and special education is crucial. Objectives stated for the interns include understanding the relationships among education agencies, both public and private; understanding the development of policy, programs, and legislation; and understanding the leadership roles and problems of educational agencies. Skills to be developed by interns included problem-solving and coping with change. This document discusses the program's methodology and describes the evolution of procedures used in the program's operation. (Author/PGD)
