Preparing Tomorrow's School Leaders: Alternative Designs.
Murphy, Joseph, Ed.
In this book, faculty from nine universities describe innovations undertaken in the context of their institutions' administrator preparation programs. The goal is to inform the profession about recent efforts to strengthen preparation programs in school administration. Following the introductory material--the preface, foreword, and introduction--chapter 1 sets the stage for the case studies that follow by describing three eras of ferment in school administration in the United States. Chapters 2-10 offer stories of nine institutions actively engaged in comprehensive program improvement efforts. The institutions include the University of New Mexico, Stanford University, the University of Washington, the University of Utah, East Tennessee State University, the University of Colorado, Miami University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A concluding chapter discusses implications of these cases for more widespread reform in administrator preparation. Notes and references accompany each chapter. (LMI)
