School administrators--Attitudes; Teacher-administrator relationships; Student-administrator relationships;
Education has undergone many changes in the past few decades. Many of these changes are due to our changing society, and others are due to those in education who see the need to make changes. Still other changes come from government directives. Our world is not the same world that it was when public.education came into being. The two parent family where mom stays home and dad goes to work as seen in 1950's television shows very rarely exists. Rural one-room schools under county jurisdiction have given way to larger consolidated school districts.
With legal mandates to include disabled children in the mainstream of education we face another set of challenges. Add to that the federal government's contribution of "No Child Left Behind" and our schools will continue to undergo as-yet unseen changes.
Educational administrators need to be on top of these changes. They need to be the voice of the people, the ears and eyes of the public. They need to listen and respond to the changes that are taking place, but more importantly, be proactive and anticipate changes that may take place.
