Southern Regional Council on Educational Administration 1999 Yearbook: Leadership for the 21st Century.
Kochan, Frances K., Ed.
This collection of seven papers provides a view of the future of educational leadership. Some of the articles deal with the life and world of the principal, while others discuss the issues involved in training educators to become effective educational leaders. The first study examines methods and structures for preparing educators and deals with the way novice teachers are prepared. The article presents some challenging ideas about the impact of negative behaviors on the supervisory process, and details an instrument that might serve as a useful tool for school administrators and university professors. The second article focuses on the preparation of school leaders. The third deals with the professional-development needs of principals relative to the use of technology. The following study shares ideas for combining assessment with technology through the use of electronic portfolios. The remaining articles deal with joint decision making, providing a thoughtful look at what it is, why it does and does not work, and what we might do to assist principals in engaging in this process; the relationship of emotional intelligence to effectiveness in the principalship; and the holistic role of leadership.
