Building Principal Preparation Programs on Theory, Practice and Research.
Achilles, C. M.
This paper advocates that principal preparation programs should be designed on traditional bases. By reviewing existing literature, this article suggests that exemplary principal preparation programs should be founded on a combination of research data, theory, and practice or craft knowledge, and that the contributions of each should be made explicit. In this way the exact blend of each of these three components will be known and can be manipulated as a means of program development and change. (JAM)
