The School Superintendent: Theory, Practice, and Casesá3e provides a comprehensive analysis of the evolution of the school district superintendent position and a blend of theory and practical knowledge pertaining to contemporary practice in this pivotal position. Readers areáencouraged to engage in reflection by linking content with personal experiences. This objective is pursued by providing reflective summaries, pertinent questions, and case studies at the end of each chapter. Theáthird edition continues to focus contextual variables influencing practice in an information-based and reform-minded society. Current reform strategies are identified and their effects on current and future role expectations for superintendents are discussed. Special attention is given to the emerging role of superintendent as communicator. The book also contains two other noteworthy features: balanced perspectives of the potential rewards and challenges commonly experienced by school superintendents and career development information. The former topic includes both professional and personal issues; the latter encompasses career planning, application and interview processes, and quality of life considerations.
