Making Better Decisions About School Problems - Book Cover

Making Better Decisions About School Problems

How Administrators Use Evaluation to Find Solutions
This book shows principals how they can make better decisions by using evaluation in a systematic way to find solutions to school problems. Cases of `real-life' problems are presented and analyzed and examples of solutions for commonly encountered problems are presented.

The author demonstrates how the actual practice of school administrators can be studied and analyzed so as to inform theory//model building and how the resulting model in turn produces an instrument that allows school administrators to more systematically evaluate school problems and make decisions about them.
