Preparing Educational Leaders for Tomorrow. Occasional Paper No. 9.
Pellicer, Leonard; And Others
A description is given of Project PELT (Preparation of Educational Leaders for Tomorrow), a cooperative administrative internship training program created to develop a talent pool of prospective administrators for relatively small school districts in Florida. Using a cooperative administrative internship training model, ten prospective principals were trained during the 1982-83 school year. The program was developed to fill a perceived need for an increase in the number of qualified women and minorities available for leadership positions in districts with limited financial resources. PELT sought to fill the need to narrow the gap between administrative theory and practice by structuring a practical "hands-on" administrative experience for interns based on sound theoretical precepts.
