One of the most widely read books in educational leadership, Educational Administration uses a systems perspective to synthesize the relevant theory and research on organizational behavior and focuses on understanding and applying theory to solve problems of practice. With each new edition, the latest research and theory are incorporated into the analysis of teaching, learning, and leading. Educational Administration helps future administrators understand the content and context of schools, remember key ideas and principles, and apply and practice those principles as they lead.
Wonderful comprehensive text for anyone teaching a course in organizational theory or educational administration. Easy to read, great for grad students who are studying for comprehensive exams in educational leadership or educational administration. Hoy and Miskel have created a wonderfully thorough 8th edition that incorporates current research, Seminole works, and clear definitions to help anyone understand the field better. Also, Hoy's website offers many incredible tools to assist instructors and students with research instruments, powerpoints, articles, quizzes, and even a cookbook!
Oi...it's interesting to consider the ways different organizational structures impact education, but it is definitely not the most exciting read.
This book meets its purpose, to read and use when completing course work. Several pages were stuck together and it was a bit worn looking. No big deal since it is a rental.
