SMALL SCHOOLS MUY
PLAN OWN PROGRAMS,
SUPERINTENDENT SAYS
SIZE SHOULD NOT NECESSARILY
HANDICAP INSTITUTION,
ERICKSON STATES
CITES HILLSDALE SYSTEM
Changing Conditions Have Giveni
Official More Time for Creative
Work, Speaker Explains
"It is possible for the small school
system to work out a supervisory
program on the same basic principles
of the larger schools, such as Detroit
and Grand Rapids," said Superintend-
ent John E. Erickson, of the Hilsdale
public schools, in his lecture. "Super-
vision in the Small School System,"
VAven in the auditoium of the Uni-
versity High School yesterday after-
noon. "Of course it cannot be done
as completely or on as large scale,
but the results are beneficial."
"In former days the dutieseof a sup-
erintendent were largely managerial
in nature. He had to care for the
routine matters and very seldom was
he allowed anything to say about the
hiring of teachers. But today, even in
the smaller schools lie is allowed
much more iesponsibility and more
of .the routine matter is taken out of
his hands. One problem of the super-
intendent is to shift more of the pure
ly administrative burden to the
shoulders of principals and spend
more time on the creative and super-
visory work, which is, after all, the
most important. Today his task is
the co-ordinating of the creative and
administrative sides."
Board Should Be Consulted
"In attempting to install an efficient
supervisory program in a small school
the superintendent should begin by
educating the school board to the
value of it. This may be done b
furnisAing members with information
about the school, such as the budget
for several years, the superintendents
report and. a list of the things to be
discussed at the next meeting. When
visiting another school take a mem-
ber of the school board with you and
let him see some of the problems there
and the way they are met.
"After the board is ready for the
project explain the work to the teach-
ers. Outline the policy, give the
teaching objectives, and build confi-
dence towards yourself in the teach-
er. Do away with the regular teach-
er's meeting and only caf them when
you have something to say."
Explains DesirableSystem
Superinten ent Erickson explained
the system 'thich is to be started in
the Hilsdale schools this year and
gave it as an example of what might
be done in other small systems. He
showed how much of the administra-
tive work was delegated to others and
gave the superintendent more time
for the creative side.
"The functions of the creative sup-
ervisor are to build a research pro.
gram, to solve instructional prob-
lems, to direct the construction of a
course of study, to direct a testing
program, and to formulate methods
of diagnosis and institute remedia
measures to correct the conditions and
mistakes found," he concluded.
