Management Training for School Leaders: The Academy Concept. Fastback 198.
Patterson, Arlene H.
School leaders are finding that they are often not equipped to assume the responsibilities of their roles as principals and superintendents. Responding to the needs of educational executives are the "academies" that are funded, supported, and sometimes staffed by state education agencies. Today there is an increasing number of academy programs offered by education agencies. Currently, 8 states (Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina) have management training programs at the state level, and 12 states have programs available through public education agencies. Five of the most sophisticated academies are described and it is suggested that these might serve as models for other states. (MLF)
