Budget cuts, sexual harassment, ethnic issues, and a multitude of moral and legal dilemmas confront school administrators at every level. Proper training is essential in order to deal soundly with each problem that arises. Hayes provides a variety of real-life case studies that will contribute important supplemental information on specific aspects of an administrator's work. There are no simple answers to the questions raised by these cases, but their presentation will help administrators and future administrators better understand the ambiguities and difficulties in each of these cases.
