Reflections and Commentary from the Field: Connecting the Reform of Administrator Preparation to the Reform of Teacher Preparation
Monk, David H.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v44 n2 p282-295 2008
Purpose: Attention is drawn in this article to the presence and dysfunctional nature of a disconnection between professional preparation programs for administrators and for teachers. Findings: A case is made for achieving greater alignment between the work going on in these areas, particularly in light of the growing efforts to hold schools accountable for pupil performance gains. A case is also made for balancing reform efforts so that disproportionate attention is not paid to one area relative to the other.
