SchoolbusMichelle Young, Executive Director of the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA), recently asked whether educational leadership professors should spend some of their time as practicing administrators. This would be akin to teacher education professors spending some of their time teaching in P-12 classrooms.

What do you think? Is this a good idea? If so, is this logistically feasible for school systems (e.g., could professors have any real responsibility or would it be like doing a preservice administrator internship)? What would need to change in colleges and universities for this to work? Head on over to Michelle’s post and contribute to the discussion!
