Critical Issues in the Preparation of Educational Administrators in North America.
Hills, Jean
Educational administration in North America is in a state of disarray, according to the author, because of the conduct of its practice, the preparation of its practitioners, and the advancement of knowledge relevant to its practice. Issues involved in the long-range preparation for work in educational administration is the focus of this report, and six characteristics are explained as minimally essential to an individual's preparation: (1) a firm basis in clinical values, (2) a grounding in relevant academic disciplines, (3) specialized knowledge acquired from the relevant disciplines and clinical experience, (4) a strong emphasis on cognitive and instrumental values, (5) a knowledge of clinical problems, and (6) internalization of the values of socialization.
