Designed to help users analyze the processes by which decisions are made, focus on legal, ethical and career-altering issues, and sharpen their own decision-making skills, this casebook explores the problems confronting school administrators at all levels and in a variety of settings. The cases and a variety of pre- and post-case questions and activities encourage readers to examine their own assumptions, beliefs, values, and administrative style.
The cases are based on situations which have confronted administrators in real settings and examine issues from several levels of administration — elementary school, middle school, high school, and the central office. Cases cover a wide, current, and varied array of problems — with an emphasis on case studies of non-dramatic, typical, and daily concerns and problems, as well as some more complex and high-profile scenarios.
For educational administrators.
