Summary

Previous models for providing professors of educational administration opportunities to spend a year working as urban school district administrators have a number of problems. Professors must make decisions they will not be around to implement, and they often find it difficult to return to the university. Instead, the professor might be provided an opportunity for professional renewal through becoming a full-time "de facto" member of an urban school district's management team for one term. The professor would thus be given an opportunity to observe school district functioning, interact with school people, and help the district in some area of the professor's expertise. For this program to be successful, the district must provide specific placement; allow access to meetings, schools, and district data; provide introductions and clear explanations of the professor's role; and assign appropriate tasks. The professor, in turn, must be clear about personal renewal goals, abide by local norms, take advantage of opportunities offered, earn acceptance from the management team, and keep restricted information strictly confidential. If all these obligations are met, the professor will return to the campus with keener insights into the complexities of urban school district management, and the practitioners will benefit from the professor's expertise and labor.
