Developing Policy for Part-Time School Administration Faculty
Kowalski, Theodore J.
AASA Journal of Scholarship & Practice, v1 n4 p3-7 Win 2005
This inquiry is an analysis of the trend toward infusing practitioners into the preparation of school administrators. Motives for increasing the number of part-time employees in higher education are identified and specific problems associated with the deployment of these instructors are discussed. The argument is made that the merits of this trend depend on the extent to which department policy addresses adjunct faculty employment, deployment and development in relation to a reform vision and strategy. Essential policy considerations related to involving practitioners are recommended.
