The Effect of an Educational Administration Course on the Expectations of Pre-Service Teachers
Menon, Maria Eliophotou
Journal of Educational Administration, v42 n1 p98-111 2004
This article investigates the effect of the completion of an undergraduate educational administration course on the expectations of pre-service teachers regarding school organization. Data were collected from 225 students enrolled in the primary education program of the University of Cyprus. According to the findings, respondents who had completed the administration course had more modest, and probably more realistic, expectations with respect to some aspects of school organization. The significant differences between course completers and non-completers concerned the future role of the teacher in the school system and the role of his/her superiors. The following recommendations are offered the inclusion of the educational administration module in the course requirements of the primary education program the improvement of the practicum currently offered by the education department and the attendance to problems in school administration, especially in the area of teacher evaluation.
