Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)


Educational Leadership


In our modern society, schools are no longer places with the threefold academic directive of teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic. Our world of social change has required schools to broaden the focus of their curriculum to include education in life skills as they are evident today. Changes in the basic structures of home and family life automatically alter the traditional social base of school children. The increasing number of mothers in the work force and the growth of single-parent families alter life situations that, in dramatic ways, alter the core and content of education.
