Case Study Digest: Preparing Teachers for Education Administration.
Hanson, Karen L., Ed.
This case study digest is intended for classroom teachers who wish to discuss a variety of challenges in school leadership. The publication targets classroom teachers who desire leadership training and aspire to become school administrators. The case studies represent actual incidents experienced by school leaders. The cases are formatted to include an overview of the community, the primary players, and the principal problem.
