Does Graduate Training in Educational Administration Improve America's Schools?
Haller, Emil J.; Brent, Brian O.; McNamara, James H.
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n3 p222-27 Nov 1997
The United States is one of few nations requiring considerable administrator training to become certified. Private-school students outperform their public-school peers, even though private-school administrators have considerably less graduate training than public-sector administrators. Using 1987-88 Schools and Staffing Survey data, this article shows that educational administration graduate programs have little or no influence on the attributes characterizing effective schools.
