Degree Discipline



Supervision has for its object the development of a group of professional workers who attack their problems scientifically free from the control of tradition and actuated by the spirit of inquiring.

Supervision is recognized as the most important function of the functions of the elementary school. The principal's main chance lies in training on the job. Training on the job means analyzing mistakes and correcting them. A teacher is trained in the job by a principal when the principal observes her, commends her good practice, analyzes her mistakes and shows her how to correct them.
