Toward a Model for Preparation Programs for Education's Leaders.
Achilles, C. M.
This paper presents a model for preparation programs for educational leaders. The model portrays key program elements under three major headings: (1) pre-preparation concerns, (2) program issues and concerns, and (3) post-program concerns. Recruitment and selection are important pre-preparation concerns. The candidate's leadership experience, academic record, general knowledge, and professional knowledge must be considered. Program mission, course content, course sequence, teaching methods, clinical practice experiences, and exit standards are the salient program issues and concerns. Post-program concerns involve the department of educational administration in a continuing relationship with alumni, who would hopefully recommend new candidates, serve as field supervisors for internships and practica, and provide useful assessment and feedback so the department can improve its program.
