Open Access Graduate Research Paper


In this reflective essay I will share my personal characteristics and background which have colored my view of life in general and administration in particular. These observations, along with the knowledge and skills added through work experience and course studies, result in a selected style of administration which I believe will work well for me as an individual. References supporting the success of my selected style of administration through site-based management have been included. Site-based management is the delegation of authority by the central office or hierarchy to the principal and teachers. This management style has also been called teacher-empowerment, site decision making, school-based management, and participatory management. Regardless of which of these names is used, the concept behind them is essentially the same.
