Training for School Management: Lessons from the American Experience. Bedford Way Papers No. 35.
Cooper, Bruce S.; Shute, R. Wayne
Two American academicians critically examine the American system of administrator training and certification. Suggested are key features that Britain might usefully adopt and other areas where Britain might improve on the inflexibilities of United States' policies. This book suggests mandatory certification as a central part of the process. The American model for training school administrators is reviewed according to its strengths and pitfalls. The issue of certification is treated with urgency and includes a discussion of how Great Britain can get started, the policy and the process of certification, and the contents of academic programs. The final chapter presents several scenarios that offer an optimistic glimpse into the future should Britain go toward a certification system for school leaders. Appended are 103 references. (SI)
