Name: School Personnel Administration: What is Administration and Who are the Personnel?
ID: m18642
Language: English (en)
Summary: Most texts and courses focused on the administration of school personnel do a pretty good job of defining the subject but few effectively and thoroughly explain the WHO are the personnel? In addition, much of the instructional material (i.e., texts, manuscripts, etc.) assumes that leading and managing personnel is "cut and dried." Assuming that personnel issues are similar across the wide range of school districts and divisions is problematic to say the least. For example, leading and managing personnel issues in a small rural district in Southwest Virginia is much different than the administration of human resources in Fairfax County, Virginia. The purposes of this course in personnel administration are: (1) to discuss and reflect on the many situational variables that exist in schools, (2) to think about and understand the amiguity of leadership, and (3) to ready students for the myriad of situations and problems encountered in the administration of personnel.
