School Leadership and Administration is designed to help prospective and experienced principals, administrators and supervisors increase their knowledge and skills through concepts, case-studies, and simulations. Two parts make up this text. Part I presents important theoretical concepts and research findings that if adequately understood and appropriately applied can improve educators? problem solving and leadership effectiveness. Part II consists of over 65 reality-based case studies, ?In-Basket Exercises,? simulations, and role-plays to illustrate problems and issues. The case studies, simulations, and exercises stimulate class discussion and reflection on key issues facing today?s school administrator with guidelines for thoughtful problem solving and resolution.
