Elementary School Organization and Administration

Excerpt

As editor of Professor Otto's second revision of Elementary-School Organization and Administration, I take special pleasure in commending it to all educators who are interested in the field of elementary education. The new edition is far more than an up-to-date revision of an old text. The new edition sparkles with new life. It is a completely new orientation and thorough treatment of the problems, theory, and practices of the modern elementary school. It adds a decade of research and practical experimentation to the 1944 edition.

The author presents a most timely and dynamic treatment of the problems and possibilities that now confront the elementary-school staff. Two decades of experience as Director of an experimental elementary school, nation-wide contact as consultant in the improvement of elementary-school programs, and a score of years as a leading investigator, instructor, and writer in the field of elementary education, have given Professor Otto an ideal background for writing a thoroughly practical and authoritative textbook of immediate and lasting value to teachers, supervisors, and administrators.

Of particular value to workers in the field of elementary education is the author's clarification of the basic principles of organization and administration in such a manner that it is now possible to apply them to new and changing situations. For its progressive but practical spirit, its comprehensive grasp of essential principles, and its forthright treatment of basic school issues, the editor heartily recommends Elementary-School Organization and Administration as an essential textbook, as a standard library reference, and as a guiding handbook for principals.
