“The book addresses a long felt need to describe and investigate the education and training of school administrators. The topic is especially timely with the current emphasis on educational reform and reports from the 'effective schools' research which puts emphasis on the quality of leadership, especially principals.” — Patricia A. Schmuck, Lewis and Clark College In this important new collection Murphy and Hallinger bring together descriptions of a wide range of the new models in use in educational administrative training. Most of these eleven models have developed in response to contemporary criticism of the educational administrative theory movement, and each, in its own way, strives to bridge the chasm between educational theory and practice. The approaches represented here stress the importance of the administrators' engagement in the daily life of the school, and encourage administrators to learn from one another. While some models have come from leadership academies, others have been developed and tested in state departments of education, professional associations, and educational institutions. The book represents an important resource for those working with pre- and inservice administrators as they learn ways in which their involvement can improve the nation's schools.
