A performance-based preparation program for school administrators:The search for instructional leadership

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

A performance-based preparation program recently introduced by the State of Georgia for school administrators moves away from the traditional preparation programs of discrete courses taught by faculty in higher education to one requiring tighter linkages among course offerings marked by work in the field requiring about fifty percent of program time. The intent is to ensure that administrators who go through the program can provide the instructional leadership needed to improve student academic achievement It is argued here that this intent is unlikely to be met if schools remain loosely-coupled organizations with teachers acting as autonomous instructional agents. It is proposed that an evaluation system be implemented to create a more tightly framed, research-based instructional culture for the school.
