Summary

Practices of 132 institutions in 43 states and the District of Columbia accredited to offer programs for the preparation of elementary school principals at the graduate level were compared. Eighty-one institutions offer both the 1-year master's degree and the 2-year specialist in education degree programs, 37 offer the master's program only, nine offer the specialist program only, three offer no program, and two gave incomplete information. Eighteen tables summarize findings regarding the requirements of the 207 programs. Most programs include no thesis or foreign language requirements, and no internship or field experience. The study recommends that (1) a common program be developed in accord with recommendations of the N.e.a. Department of elementary school principles, (2) the 1-year master's degree program be replaced by a 2-year post-baccalaureate specialist in education program, (3) emphasis be given to curriculum content concerned with organizations administration, research, and related areas of leadership, and (4) the concept of elementary school principals be upgraded to a position requiring people with personal, academic and professional qualifications which are extraordinary.
