Appropriate Graduate Work for Elementary School Principals


by James F. Hosic 1931

AT PRESENT most of those who take college courses bearing upon the elementary school principalship are themselves elementary school principals.1 Whatever graduate work is offered in this field should, therefore, assume experience in the office. Moreover, since almost all who are now principals were formerly teachers or still continue to teach, training and experience in classroom work may also be assumed. The students are mature men and women, often without much equipment in the scientific study of education, to be sure, but with a working knowledge of schools and school practices that sets them distinctly apart from ordinary academic groups engaged in advanced study.2 Analogies drawn with the customs and traditions of graduate schools in general are, therefore, likely to be misleading.
