A Proposal for Excellence in Educational Administration.
Achilles, C. M.
Numerous 1983-84 educational improvement studies emphasized the need for strong principal leadership, yet present reform efforts fail to address adequately principal preparation. This proposal for administrative excellence has a four-category focus: recruitment of those with strong liberal arts degrees; selection of those committed to an 11-month preparatory program to which districts contribute fiscal support and a mentor-supervisor; three-phase training for "expert power"; and retention/pay reforms, such as linking salaries to adult development stages rather than to length of service. Four pages of tables and three of references are included. (KS)
