Outcome-Based Education and Administrative Training: What Educational Leaders Need To Know and Be Able To Do.
Brogan, Bernard R.
Educational leaders may recognize the promise of a performance-based educational system, but often are wary of confronting well-orchestrated special interest groups who oppose the change. This paper provides a basis for dialogue on both the promise of outcome-based education (OBE) and the challenge it presents to educational leaders. It argues that the success of OBE depends on enlightened leadership and that administrator-education programs play a critical role in preparing administrators for the transition process. The paper provides a brief background of the OBE movement and identifies concerns raised by opponents. It then describes the conditions essential to the implementation of OBE: (1) trust; (2) the concept of education as a journey; (3) continuous and benchmark assessment; (4) student readiness; (5) an engaging learning environment; (6) family involvement; (7) qualified teachers; (8) state-of-the-art facilities; (9) community partnerships; and (10) shared school governance. Contains 14 references. (LMI)
