Kowalski, Theodore J.
This book immerses prospective administrators in the realities of practice and decision-making through the use of a wide range of open-ended case studies. Effective practice in school administration involves making decisions about school management and reform, including issues such as state deregulation, district decentralization, and school restructuring. Leaders need to think beyond management and consider how to affect school culture, professional development, and changing populations. The cases in this book will help leaders address those issues by sharpening three key skills: (1) How to identify and solve problems; (2) How to develop and evaluate alternative solutions; (3) How to continuously refine professional knowledge.New To This Edition: Worksheets are now provided for each case to allow instructors greater flexibility for use. More emphasis on entry-level positions (assistant principal and principal) provides a broader perspective on school leadership. New cases for institutions, such as vocational schools and alternative schools, have been added to reflect the options that are available today with school choice. The cases have been thoroughly revised and updated to cover a range of current problems in practice so that new administrators will recognize the situations and understand how decisions can be applied. A new case dealing with No Child Left Behind Legislation has been added to illustrate current federal legislation. Related Titles:Contemporary School Administration: An Introduction, 2/e Theodore J.
