dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to develop a proposed program that would provide comprehensive preparation for prospective secondary and elementary school administrators in Jamaica. The population consisted of one hundred practicing school administrators in Jamaica.A Q-sort technique was used to prioritize thirty-six educational preparation goal statements. The twenty most important goals were chosen and rank-ordered to develop a core curriculum for the proposed program. Findings The following goal statements were ranked as the four most important goals by practicing school administrators:-Goal Statement 1--"Develop competence in selection, development and evaluation of personnel."-Goal Statement 3--"Development and understanding of the decision making process."-Goal Statement 13--"Develop competence in providing leadership in the development of the total school curriculum and educational policies."-Goal Statement 27--"Develop competence in fostering and maintaining staff and student morale."Goal statements judged to be the least important by practicing school administrators were:-Goal Statement 16--"Develop competence in the process of negotiations and concepts of labor relations in the public school setting."-Goal Statement 33--"Develop competence in the use of computers in educational operations and in the decision making process." Conclusions The judgment of practicing school administrators regarding core preparation experiences needed by prospective administrators was revealed by the final rank-ordering of the set of twenty educational goal statements.Since the rank-ordering of the goal statements revealed that administrators in all types of positions were in substantial agreement on the items ranked in the top half of the set of twenty goal statements it would seem reasonable that the core of a program include the content suggested from these items. en_US
