Graduate Research Papers


Open Access Graduate Research Paper


I chose Educational Administration graduate work with the ultimate goal of becoming an athletic director. I also thought if I knew more about the administrative perspective I would be a more effective teacher. I believed if I knew more about school law, school and public relations, organizational skills, supervision and evaluation techniques in the educational setting, I could enhance my teaching and coaching abilities. After four years of techniques, law, and research on education administration, I now believe the best administrators are not those who write the best papers or get the best test scores, but instead those who can lead, motivate, communicate and obtain the best from every student, staff member and parent.
