Educational Leadership: A Series of Papers on the Superintendency - ECS commissioned Thomas E. Glass, professor of Educational Leadership at the University of Memphis, to produce a series of issue papers on the state of the superintendency. The issue papers listed below are based on survey results from four key groups: (1) school board presidents; (2) a group of outstanding "superintendent leaders"; (3) consultants who have been involved in superintendent hiring searches; and (4) members of key state education groups, including chief state school officers, the American Association of School Administrators and the National School Boards Association. By viewing the role of the superintendent through several different perspectives, these papers help shed a more balanced light on the serious problems that the superintendency currently faces. These papers also provide potential policy questions that should be considered in order to address these problems.
