The authors contend that there are common understandings and competencies essential to administering an elementary school, a large comprehensive high school, or a transitional junior high or middle school. These provide the principal with perspectives about our changing sociality and about teaming up with individuals and groups within the framework of formal and informal school organizations. As an educational executive, the principal must be capable of implementing an administrative process that utilizes and stimulates imput from all people within the community and at the same time provides leadership for the future. The overriding philosophy of this book is the simple but often neglected principles that instruction of the students and learning by the students are the supreme reason for the school's existence. 480 pages
