Reform in Administrator Preparation: Myths, Realities, and Proposals. UCEA Monograph Series.
Wendel, Frederick C., Ed.
This handbook is comprised of four chapters that examine the history and reform of educational administration. Chapter 1, "The Mythology of Reform in Educational Administrator Preparation: Antecedents of Paradigms Lost," by Thomas Wiggins, examines myths in educational administration and problems with traditional paradigms. Chapter 2, "Beyond the Administrative Internship: A Proposal for the 1990s," by Robert G. Owens and Carl R. Steinhoff, examines issues involved in changing the traditional internship model from one that is based on the medical-education model to a model of professional education. In chapter 3, "Administrator Preparation Programs: Levels of Discourse," Paul A. Pohland develops an analytical framework to examine alternatives to administrator preparation programs presented in "Approaches to Administrative Training in Education" (Murphy and Hallinger, 1987). The final chapter, "Exploring the Effects of Computer-Mediated Work on Educational Organizations," by Muriel Mackett, Frederick Frank, and Peter Abrams, explores the implications of technological intervention and the effects of computer-mediated work environments on the field of educational administration. References accompany each chapter. (LMI)
