Educational Leadership


Much of the attention given to the public schools during the past seven years by government, business, and industry is currently being directed toward higher education and, especially, to the graduate schools. In a recent study, Graduate Education: A Critique and a Program, Oliver C. Carmichael, former President of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, states: No segment of higher education has so significant a role to play as the graduate school during the seventh decade of this century. It is the pace setter for the enterprise. Much depends upon its effectiveness during this critical period, when college and university enrollments will be climbing to an unprecedented high. This vast horde will require more instruction, more guidance, and more wise leadership than any previous generation of students. Despite statements to the contrary, a crisis has developed which can be met only by a revitalized graduate education program.
