School Leadership: A Blueprint for Change.
Thomson, Scott D., Ed.
The new age of education shows an increasing focus on human development through family involvement, community learning resources, community social service, staff development, involvement, technology, learning climate, and motivation/reward systems. Integration of these areas calls for skills that are not traditionally taught to school leaders. This document identifies key issues in the changing nature of leadership and proposes new programs for both the preparation and certification of school leaders. Six essays are presented: (1) "Leadership in a World of Change" (Terrence E. Deal); (2) "Leadership in Schools" (Richard C. Wallace, Jr.); (3) "The Knowledge Base for School Leaders" (Lloyd E. McCleary); (4) "Redesigning the Preparation of School Administrators: Toward Consensus" (Patrick B. Forsyth); (5) "Professional Certification and Licensure: Governance, Organization, and Procedures" (Dean B. Bowles); and (6) "Strengthening Professionalism: The Ethical Dimensions" (Michael P. Thomas). (LAP)
