Ok, the first ‘real’ educational leadership and management’ assignment. Divulging no names, the gist of the assignment:
- An all girls school has seen a marked decline in enrollment; the usual interventions have been put into place to save the school. But alas, they are now left with one item on the agenda: Should the school embrace coeduation?
There are no simple solutions. It is a complex system and a cursory review and solution is not an option. How can the board members respect the mission of the school and at the same time encourage change, if change indeed is needed.
If you post what you think should happen to the school, please be sure to defend your argument with research and statistics. After my paper is graded, I’ll post my defense.
