Summary

Demands, constraints, and choices have always shaped the decision-making character of educational administration. Only the content of demands, constraints, and choices change with the times. Enduring public values such as equity, efficiency, choice, and excellence are examined historically and currently as prime influences on school policy. This book introduces readers to both school governance and administration in education.

It provides a balanced overview of the development of thought in educational administration, providing readers with a realistic view of the promises and pitfalls of professionalism in administration. It also includes a realistic treatment of the nature of administrative work and takes a problem solving approach. There is an exhaustive discussion of financial and legal problems that serves as a background for a discussion of issues. An important theme that runs throughout the book is how conflicting values influence educational governance and administration.
