Educational Improvement in the United States.
Chand, Krishan
Recent national reports on the status of education in the United States fail to analyze the relationship between the quality and qualifications of school superintendents and the quality of education. Superintendents appear to be hired all too often on the basis of who they know rather than of how qualified they are. Only 30 percent of the superintendents have obtained doctorates, and only 51.5 percent are certificated for their positions. Turnover among superintendents is high, affecting the quality of long-term educational development. To lessen turnover rates, an effort should be made to improve the working conditions that affect superintendents' levels of job satisfaction. (PGD)
