Education Administrator

How to become an Education Administrator

Many educator administrators start their careers as educators, but not all do. To hold a position of leadership at an educational institution, usually a master's degree in education administrator/leadership is required. If an education administrator is serving in an institution of higher learning, a doctorate degree is required. If one wishes to become a public school principal, there are state regulated licenses that must be obtained and maintained. If one wishes to become the director of a preschool or child care center, certification in child development is required. The point for high school levels and below is that education administrators would be kept up to date on emerging education trends and effective education implementation ideas. There is also extra care taken with the institutions that deal with children and adolescents due to the delicacy and complexity of child and adolescent development issues and considerations, which are constantly being updated through research.

What does an Education Administrator do?

There are various types of education administrators and they all have very different roles.

Principals and vice principals of schools provide primary leadership to their institutions by establishing and enforcing policies, the "culture" of an institution, and making executive decision on behalf of the institution on matters of budget, hiring, human resources management, goal setting, fundraising, procurement, facilities development, etc. They also act as liaisons with administrators elsewhere in the school systems, parents, student bodies, law makers (sometimes) and the teachers and staff of their schools. Often, decision making is highly complex because a principal must make decisions, considering the interests and well being of every group and perspective.

Administrators not tied to a particular school but to a district instead usually hold a regional responsibility for the academic standards in their "territory's" institutions. They also sometimes oversee certain programs that are district oriented, vs. individual school oriented, in the areas of behavioral health, athletic and professional development resourcing.

In post-high school education, a number of positions exist to assist with the development and enforcement of academic policies, budge oversight, program development, fundraising and collaboration. The titles vary and include provost, chief academic officer, and dean.

There are also the leaders of the distinct departments at colleges and universities. These positions, usually given the title of department head or department chairperson, are also considered education administrators as they help oversee the faculty and educational issues in their department.

There are other areas of education administration and other titles, but these comprise the core categories, mostly broken down by what age the students are - post or pre-college/...
