Symbolic Educational Leadership and Democracy in America.
Slater, Robert O.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v30 n1 p97-101 Feb 1994
Agrees with Bolman and Deal's observations concerning symbolic leadership in the same "Educational Administration Quarterly" issue. Points out some pitfalls of democracy--its tendency to promote conformity and undermine symbols. A society that commits itself to the democratic ideal must strive to organize its institutions accordingly and choose school leaders who can articulate this ideal in understandable and exciting terms.
