Summary

The American public school no longer exists for the purpose of producing respectable middle class citizens. Moreover, the school administrator, long trained to manage schools, teachers, parents, and children with unquestioned authority, is approaching extinction. Schools have not been for educating children but for producing conformity to socially acceptable norms. The emerging social environment is not as supportive of uniformity, middle class responsibility, and quiet citizenship as it once was. If the administrator is to survive, he must recognize that the world is changing and change with it. The school administrator will need to focus on previously ignored dimensions such as the attitudinal stance of teachers, students, and parents. He will need to understand and be able to accept the values of others which are contrary to his own. Administrators will have to learn new skills of institutional planning, organizational diagnosis, resource development, conflict management, and data utilization. In short, the time has arrived for creativity in providing a school environment to meet the needs of a diverse student population from a pluralistic society. (TT)
