Translating Superintendent and Principal Perceptions of Needed Leadership Skills into Pre-Service Pedagogy.
Alexander, Gary C.
Journal of Adult Education, v24 n2 p12-21 Fall-Win 1996
Interviews with 43 superintendents and 35 elementary-secondary principals revealed three themes: (1) the growing sophistication of the principal role; (2) inadequate pre- and inservice training; and (3) the need for skills in participatory decision making, facilitating leadership, and coping with change. A Socratic seminar in which these skills could be developed was designed. (SK)
