Current Issues in the Management of Education. Proceedings of the Annual Conference of the British Educational Administration Society (8th, Sheffield, England, September 1979). Sheffield Papers in Educational Management, No. 12.
Watson, Leonard E., Ed.
This document presents edited versions of the keynote and seminar papers presented at the eighth annual conference of the British Educational Administration Society in 1979. The conference focused on the relation of educational management in England to three particular subjects: educational finance, enrollment decline, and the evaluation of educational institutions. The five papers relating to finance deal with school resources, particularly faculty; educational costs during economically trying times; secondary school costs; and the economics of small schools. The 13 papers devoted to enrollment decline discuss planning and policy formation, costs of decline, the availability of professional assistance, effects on employment of teachers, the impact of decline on labor relations and curriculum, and school closing. Another 13 papers deal with educational evaluation, considering such topics as educational audits, self-evaluation by schools, evaluation of management, competency-based evaluation, and the purposes, problems, and priorities of evaluation.
