The History of Educational Administration Viewed Through Its Texts provides the reader a history of the development of the professional field of educational administration. From the Common School Era of the 1840s through the Era of Accountability in 2000, leaders of the profession wrote textbooks to both inform and instruct those desiring to follow in their footsteps. Historical leaders such as Elwood Cubberley, George Strayer, George Counts, and Jesse Sears are identified, and the ways in which their work influenced the profession and the public schools is examined. The various management themes running through the practice of educational administration over a 150-year period are also discussed. Among these themes is the administrator as a: philosopher and manager of virtue, scientific manager, executive, transformational leader, instructional leader in a time of high stakes accountability. The schools of "thought" affecting the preparation of education administrators is also discussed in the framework of general educational administration textbooks. The early textbooks written by the "grandfathers" were compendiums of "best practice" later eclipsed in the 1960s by a "theory movement" to make practice more scientific. This "new movement" was based on research in the social and behavioral sciences. The "theory movement" presently seems to be giving way to a return of textbooks being compendiums of best practice based on "professional" standards. Lastly, an exploration of the development and impact the specialization of the field has had on both textbooks and practice is included. The splintering of the educational administration professorate into finance, law, policy, personnel, and other specialties has had a profound impact on textbooks and practice. The development of standards dictating certification and licensing has also been influenced by specialization as opposed to general preparation. This book is a must for university libraries and every doctoral student writing a dissertation in educatio

As the sixth volume in the International Research on School Leadership series, the contributing authors in this volume consider the history, challenges, and opportunities of the field of research and practice in educational leadership and administration in schools and districts. Ten years after the work of Firestone and Riehl (2005) and their contributing authors, our aim with the present volume was to summarize and update the work of the field, and provide a space to consider the multiple futures of educational leadership in schools and districts, as both challenges and opportunities. The first decade of the twenty?first century brought significant critiques, challenges, and competition to the research and practice of training leaders and administrators of schools and districts around the world. Congruently, the field experienced significant growth and change, as multiple new sub?domains flourished and were founded. Thus, in this volume we were delighted to included excellent chapters from multiple authors that considered the duality of the challenges and opportunities of: The work of the field of educational leadership and administration research to date. The opportunities and challenges of new visions of leadership in traditional and non?traditional schools. The evolving state of research evidence in educational leadership and the increasing sophistication of multiple methodologies, including qualitative research, quantitative modeling, the ability to test theory, and the increasing opportunities brought on by the intersection of data, research, and practice. The preparation of educational leaders. And the emerging trends in the professional development of school leaders. The authors of the nine chapters in the present book volume took on this challenge of confronting the duality of not only including the past as we look to the future, but also the duality of the critique of the field in the midst of exciting and significant progress in our knowledge and understanding of leadership in schools. In the first section of the book (Chapters 2, 3 and 4), the authors examine the interplay of educational leadership research and theory as it relates to reform in schools, especially as it relates to serving historically underserved populations globally. In section 2 (Chapters 5 and 6), the authors highlight the importance of methodological considerations in school leadership research as a means to understand theory and practice as well as providing interesting avenues that point to multiple exciting future possibilities through rely ing on current innovations noted within the chapters. Section 3, (Chapters 7 and 8) examine the research and practice of school leadership preparation, especially as it relates to university?district partnerships and non?traditional school settings. And in the final chapter, (Chapter 9), our capstone contributor provides a means to link the present volume with the past writings on these topics, while also providing a lens to view the exciting possibilities and promises of the multiple futures of the field of educational leadership research and practice.

Where is higher education as a field of study going in this century? How will higher education programme leaders design and sustain their degree programmes’ vitality in the face of perennial challenges from inside and outside the academy? While in 1979 the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) defined standards for student affairs master’s level preparation, and while 2010 saw the adoption of guidelines for higher education administration and leadership preparation programmes at the master’s degree level, there still are, however, no guidelines that address higher education leadership doctoral programmes, despite increasing demands for assessment and evaluation. This book suggests that higher education administration doctoral degree guidelines are a critical next step in advancing their programme quality and continuity. It offers a review of the field’s history, the condition of its higher education programmes, developments from the student affairs specialisation and its guidelines, and a multi-chapter dialogue on the benefits or disadvantages of having guidelines. At a time of urgency to prepare the next generation of higher education faculty and leaders, this book sets out the parameters for the debate about what the guidelines should cover to ensure the appropriate and effective preparation of students. It also offers a useful framework for enriching the knowledge of deans, chairs, programme coordinators and faculty who are engaged in programme design, assessment, and revision. It will also be of interest to policymakers, the personnel of accrediting agencies, and not least graduate students within higher education preparation programmes. All the contributors to this volume have the exemplary expertise, leadership experience, and a close association with higher education guidelines and standards, and have extensively contributed to the literature on higher education.

The first comprehensive history of principals in the United States. The Principal’s Office is the first historical examination of one of the most important figures in American education. Originating as a head teacher in the nineteenth century and evolving into the role of contemporary educational leader, the school principal has played a central part in the development of American public education. A local leader who not only manages the daily needs of the school but also represents district and state officials, the school principal is the connecting hinge between classroom practice and educational policy. Kate Rousmaniere explores the cultural, economic, and political pressures that have impacted school leadership over time and considers professionalization, the experiences of women and people of color, and progressive community initiatives. She discusses the intersections between the role of the school principal with larger movements for civil rights, parental and community activism, and education reform. The school principal emerges as a dynamic character in the center of the educational enterprise, ever maneuvering between multiple constituencies, responding to technical and bureaucratic demands, and enacting different leadership strategies. By focusing on the historic development of school leadership, this book provides insights into the possibilities of school improvement for contemporary school leaders and reformers.

This book advances the new field of educational leadership--that of policy scholarship. It examines the ways in which concepts of educational leadership and management have evolved historically and culturally and reviews contemporary debates about the nature of school leadership. These debates involve cultural conservatives, New Right marketeers, democrats, community educators, feminists, and critical theorists. The policy-scholarship approach goes beyond the policy-science perspective. This new approach relates surface social phenomena to the deep structure of historical, cultural, political, ideological, and value issues; and it represents the view that a social-historical approach can illuminate the cultural and ideological struggles in which schooling is located. The book presents fieldwork accounts from a study of 88 headteachers in primary and secondary English schools. It describes how headteachers face new power relationships, new curriculum responsibilities, and management and marketing cultures that generate moral, ethical, and professional dilemmas. The book contains 12 chapters, 2 of which examine the unique situations of Catholic and women headteachers. (Contains 210 references.) (LMI)
