A Student Suggested Redesign of a Principal Preparation Program


  • Claudio Salinas Texas A&M international University


Graduate students in a practicum class participated in a survey on changes they would make to the present principal preparation program they were about to finish. The survey of their anonymously secured responses was set into a questionnaire encompassing the range of their ideas. This questionnaire was then presented to these students to access their agreement or disagreement with the range of items in the instrument. Surprisingly, their set of responses was very much in agreement with certain recommendations recently made by the Southern Regional Education Board.
