Secondary School Management Problems in the 1970's.
Sigler, E. A., Jr.
Announcing a successful conclusion to the operations of the National Association of Secondary School Principals' Task Force on Management Structure and Administration Staffing, this presentation by one member of that task force introduces the problem addressed by the study and the central theme of the resulting monograph, which will be published soon. The problem is basically one of increasing pressure on the school principal, largely as a result of modern demands on education, coupled with a continuing lack of the decision-making authority the principal needs if he is to shoulder the new responsibilities. If principals make efforts to obtain and use improved management skills, it could help them convince higher-level educational managers that they are capable of assuming authority, which in turn might make it easier for principals to reorganize their work loads and school management structures to reflect new legal strictures and other demands.
