Educational Leadership


American educational institutions have recently become the most controversial of all public services. The rise of a serious challenge to the American way of life and the apparent strength of those who do not agree with American ideologies have caused the American public to assume a new concern for all its institutions. Since education is the institution which is nearer to the individual citizen in its effect, and since it is the institution upon which, to a great extent, the future welfare of the nation depends, American educational services have been subjected to increased attention, inspection, appraisal, and criticism. No level of American education from the elementary school to the university has been spared from the demand by the public that the purposes of the institution and the methods being employed to attain those purposes be stated, analyzed, and justified.
