EDLF 7872 - Introduction to Critical Issues of the Superintendency

This introductory course for the Ed.D. in the superintendency offered at the University of Virginia. Introduces students to the opportunities and challenges encountered by today’s superintendents. A superintendent must be knowledgeable of curricular and instructional issues. The superintendent must also be an astute politician, but the focus of his or her efforts in the public arena should be on forming coalitions and garnering resources to accomplish district goals and objectives. In addition, the superintendent should be an ethical and considerate problem-solver, who has the interest of the children uppermost in his or her mind. These and other issues will be discussed.
