Issues in Educational Administration.
Ediger, Marlow
School administrators need to study and analyze the pros and cons of issues before making decisions. Ultimately, decisions need to be made by administrators as to which philosophies of education to implement in resolving conflicting points of view. More research studies would lead to an increased number of syntheses of the pros and cons of certain issues. Seven of these issues are discussed: (1) diverse means of appraising teacher performance, (2) approaches in rewarding principals and supervisors; (3) ideographic (personal needs of participants) versus nomothetic (the school system) dimensions in school organization; (4) theory as compared to practice in graduate programs of school administration; (5) art versus science roles of administrators; (6) merit pay as compared to cooperative agreement on salaries of principals and supervisors; and (7) traits versus functional situations in assessing school administrators. Five references are provided. (MLF)
