The Changing Professoriate in Educational Administration. UCEA Monograph Series.
Wendel, Frederick C., Ed.
This publication contains three papers originally presented at the 1991 convention of the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA), which examine the changing professoriate in educational administration. In "The Creation of Constructive Conflict Within Educational Administration Departments," Walter H. Gmelch discusses the issues that educational administration chairs must recognize in order to resolve conflicts within their departments, and focuses on the role of department chairs as mediators of conflict. "Improving the Quality of Schooling: The Deming Philosophy and Educational Administration," by Jess E. House, proposes that professors of educational administration adopt Deming's organizational-management philosophy to transform American schooling. In "The Role of Professors in Shaping the Institutional Bases of an Educational Reform: The Cases of School-Based Management," Rodney T. Ogawa and E. Ann Adams present findings of a study that was part of a larger study that described how school-based management was developed and promoted in the United States. This paper focuses on the role of college and university professors in that process. References accompany each chapter. (LMI)
