This supervisory, administrative, and leadership text for courses at the graduate level reflects new thinking about teaching and school structures - redefining the idea of supervision to focus on seeing schools as communities rather than as organizations. In addition, "Supervision" emphasizes the student-teacher relationship rather than bureaucratic functions. Using new opinions based on current trends in education, the fifth edition takes the position of viewing the school as a community, with teaching and learning as the most important aspects of this community. In addition, the school is looked upon as a moral rather than a technical enterprise, whereby the moral authority of the supervisor, and its close link with the moral authority of the teacher, is emphasized. The simplified chapters and the revised arrangement of material provide a more logical sequence and presentation of the subject.
