Most texts and courses focused on the administration of school personnel do a pretty good job of defining the subject but few effectively and thoroughly explain the WHO are the personnel? In addition, much of the instructional material (i.e., texts, manuscripts, etc.) assumes that leading and managing personnel is "cut and dried." Assuming that personnel issues are similar across the wide range of school districts and divisions is problematic to say the least. For example, leading and managing personnel issues in a small rural district in Southwest Virginia is much different than the administration of human resources in Fairfax County, Virginia. The purposes of this course in personnel administration are: (1) to discuss and reflect on the many situational variables that exist in schools, (2) to think about and understand the amiguity of leadership, and (3) to ready students for the myriad of situations and problems encountered in the administration of personnel.

An overview

Generally, preparation programs remain segmented in topical categories such as finance, leadership, law, curriculum, and yes, personnel. Life does not proceed that way, nor does the day-to-day job of a school administrator. Administrators seldom have the luxury of segmenting their day and spending one hour strictly on legal issues and then the next on student issues, curriculum, or personnel concerns. All these topics are intertwined in the fast-paced administrative problem-solving and decision-making processes of the day. For university programs to relate more closely to actual administrative practice there should be an integration of topics across the curriculum and the incorporation of actual field experience assignments throughout the program, as opposed to only the use of case studies in the classroom setting, or when a student is assigned to an internship in a local school or district upon completion of required program coursework (Beyer, 2009).

Structure of this course

Yes, there will be lots of reading and assignments in the field, BUT, a major unique and different component will be the series of "field studies and activities" targeting the purpose of providing you with a realistic practice field rather than the common procedure of immersing our certified administrators into the performance field and wish them good luck.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
