Managing the Secondary School.
This book, written with reference to British schools, examines the skills that are needed for educational management and leadership, and discusses how those skills should be applied. The first chapter sets out the tasks and skills involved in each of three major areas: the management of learning, the school as a community, and the management of people. The remainder of Part 1 (chapter 2) considers aims, objectives, and policies in management. Part 2 (chapters 3 and 4) is concerned with the management of learning, and covers curriculum and organization. Part 3 (chapters 5 through 7) addresses the school as a community, describing the aspects of management that affect the overall life of the school, such as the care of pupils and the day-to-day details of administration. Part 4 (chapters 8 through 12) is concerned with the management of adults, both inside and outside the school. Part 5 (chapters 13 and 14) concludes the book with chapters 13 and 14 on evaluation and personal organization respectively. Three appendixes provide information on (1) the aims of education, as stipulated by the British government; (2) a system for allocating capitation allowances; and (3) British legislation affecting schools.
