The Canadian School Superintendent. Symposium Series 19.
Boich, John W., Ed.; And Others
This collection of papers examines the historical development, current circumstances, and likely future of the school superintendent's role in the various major regions of Canada and from a national perspective. All of the papers focus on the historical development, legislative provisions, duties and responsibilities, preparation and certification, current issues, and future projections regarding the school superintendency in the five regions of Canada: British Columbia, the Prairie provinces, Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic Provinces. The authors represent a mix of regions, roles, and writing styles: practicing superintendents, educational administration scholars, professional association executives, provincial officials, and university personnel. Tensions addressed are those of centralization versus decentralization; public servant versus corporate executive; and professional educator versus political manager. (SI)
