The expanding needs of students and the accountability for results in today's schools require educational leaders to utilize more resources than ever before in their approaches to indentifying, analyzing, and solving complex problems. This book approaches administration through effective school research and practice, national association standards and practices, and involving the total school community in strategic planning. Not only are the 'what should be' segments of effective adminstration addressed, but also the 'how', 'what', and 'why' segments of best practice and involvement from planning through implementation.
