Educational Leadership


Due to the perplexing problems facing education in the United States today there is a great need for capable leaders on the national, state, and local level. Education is one of the most important businesses in the country today. Over 60 million children attend school at an annual cost of $95 billion dollars to the taxpayers. With the expansion of educational services and the tremendous increase in public school attendance, the task of the school administrator has become more difficult and complex.
