EDU 614 Principles of School Administration and Leadership

The first level administrative course is designed to provide students with an introduction to school leadership theory and practice and the structure of education at the local, state and national level. The role of the administrator as a service agent for instruction and his/her function as the coordinator of school programs will be emphasized. Students will construct their perception of the role of the principal with an emphasis on the diverse and sometimes conflicting responsibilities. The paradox of the principalship, the need to be both an effective leader and manager, will be emphasized.
