Linking the UCLA/ISU Master’s of Education to the needs of schools: The personal account of a school principal

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



Abstract:

Georgia’s devolution of decision-making power in its education system created new demand for people with skills in planning, analysis, mobilizing constituencies, delegating and empowering staff. The M.Ed. at Ilia State University introduced new approaches to teaching these skills, including a practicum requirement that uses “action research” to give students experience solving real problems with the host school. It helps the school by introducing new problem-solving tools and perspectives and results in new, productive relationships between schools and the university. As the Principal of one of the Georgia’s leading public schools and a representative of the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia, Mr. Jamagidze will share his first-hand experience of how Georgia’s sweeping education policy reform impacted the role of the school principal. His account will illuminate some of the significant challenges in school management, staff development, student assessment and quality assurance that resulted when the 2005 education law granted autonomy to schools. Mr. Jamagidze will discuss his experience with the M.Ed. program and its relevance to these new challenges faced by schools. He will highlight how action research through the M.Ed. helped his school to address specific problems related to curriculum, student evaluation and quality improvement.
