Summary

A discussion of the institutional mechanisms and individual processes through which graduate students are socialized to the norms of professional practice in educational administration are presented in this paper, which builds a conceptual framework that draws from research on adult socialization, the socialization and career patterns of school administrators, and from analyses of graduate and professional student socialization paying attention also to the particular concerns of women. A conclusion is that the normative aspects of professional socialization must be considered in the development of commitment among graduate students. Recommendations include structuring preparation programs to provide intensive experiences that require commitment of significant personal resources, basing programs on strong normative consensus, and development of mechanisms that encourage faculty-graduate student interaction. One figure illustrating the conceptual framework is included. (55 references) (LMI)
