A Response to Glickman's "Preparing Thoughtful Educational Leaders"
O'Hair; Mary John; Reitzug, Ulrich C.
Journal of School Leadership, v16 n1 p112-118 Jan 2006
This is a response to an article by Carl Glickman entitled "Across the Void: Preparing Thoughtful Educational Leaders for Today's Schools" that appeared in the September 2005 issue of the "Journal of School Leadership." In his article, Glickman argues that the preparation of educational leaders must shake the assumptions that are generally held about education and schools, and presents three cases that purportedly do so. We have reservations about the cases Glickman selects to illustrate his arguments and detail our reservations in this response. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
