Selecting, Preparing and Developing the School District Superintendent.
Carter, David S. G.; And Others
Although there are about 15,000 school districts in the United States, each headed by a superintendent, research on the superintendency has not been systematic and dynamic. This book presents a synthesis of research on the superintendency. Chapters include the following: (1) "Smoke, Mirrors, or Reality: Another Instructional Leader" (Shirley M. Hord); (2) "Through the Looking Glass" (Thomas E. Glass); (3) "Point and Counterpoint: What Is In the Context of What Might Be?" (Thomas E. Glass); (4) "Exemplary Superintendents: Do They Fit the Model?" (Thomas E. Glass); (5) "Superintendent Selection and Success" (Shirley M. Hord and Nolan Estes); (6) "Diagnosis, Self-Prescription, and Treatment" (David S. G. Carter and Ben M. Harris); (7) "Assessment-Based Models for Learning and Growth" (Judith G. Loredo, Ben M. Harris, and David S. G. Carter); (8) "Enter the Neophyte: Preparing Administrators for Leadership Roles" (Judith G. Loredo and David S. G. Carter); (9) "Leadership for Learning--Learning for Leadership" (David S. G. Carter); and (10) "The Future: Mapping the Multisite Executive Development Center" (David S. G. Carter and Thomas E. Glass). The appendix contains a list of skills and components needed for instructional leadership. A total of 12 tables, 11 figures, and an index are included. (Contains 173 references.) (LMI)
