4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Reginald Williams on August 13, 2007
Format: Paperback
Even though it falls a bit short in a lot of practical application, Hoy & Miskel do a superb job in outlining just about every possible ed admin theory that is relevant in educationa entities today.

The top sections of this book that are DEFINITELY worth reading are Chapter 10's discussion on shared decision-making, Chapter 12's discussion on leadership, Chapter 4's discussion on what motivates individuals, and Chapter 5's section on climate & culture.

I recommend this book and along with Caruso & Fawcett's SUPERVISION IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION: A DEVELOPMENTAL PERSPECTIVE.

If you are interested in learning how to be a good leader or administrator, this is your book. I am currently using it as a textbook for doctoral studies.
Excellent content as well as an relatively easy read.

You will learn what you need to apply to your course study. It is very detailed, and formatted in a way so that you can the different chapters with each other.

The price on Amazon can't be beat. Pair it with Amazon Prime and it's a winner. The content is another story. It is dry, dry, dry reading. I am supposed to be reading it now, and I am doing everything but reading. I get that it's not the most exciting topic, but the author doesn't do much to make it any more "readable." It's so dry and so data heavy, and really, it you are going to be a Principal and don't know half the stuff in here by nature, then you probably should pick another profession! But, the content is good. Just wish it had a bit more personality!
