Educational Administration 5E : Concepts and Practices
Comprehensiveness. No other Introduction to Educational Administration text provides as much breadth and depth of coverage.
The authors maintain an appropriate balance of theory to practice, using an impressive research base that is grounded by well-chosen examples and practical advice.
"Exemplary Educational Administrators in Action" boxes provide profiles of school superintendents and principals, many of whom represent large, urban districts.
"Administrative Advice" provides practical tips for educational administrators including checklists (example: "Checklist for Developing a School Budget"), guidelines (example:: "Guidelines for Safe Playgrounds"), and suggestions "Addressing Resistance to Change"). Each chapter includes several of these special features.
"PRO/CON Debates" in each chapter illustrate opposing perspectives on major issues encountered by educational administrators.
