Preparing school administrators for the challenges they will face requires materials well-informed about the nuts and bolts of education in real life. Only a richly detailed case study book like Short and Scribner's will provide them with the opportunity to analyze current issues. Each narrative chapter concludes with application questions and a list of references. The authors, some of the most respected American scholars on the superintendency have compiled cases grounded in research and reality. They explore topics such as the politics of education, the debate over merit pay, women in the superintendency, and the role of the superintendent as an instructor.
