Educational management, also sometimes known as educational administration, is commonly associated with elementary and secondary schools as well as institutes of higher learning like colleges and universities. Educational management professionals can also be found working in governmental agencies, private companies, and not-for-profit organizations. Those working in educational management might act as policy-makers, researchers, or consultants to help evaluate and develop ways to enrich and enhance the educational system at all levels. Most educational management professionals have earned at least a master's degree and many are licensed teachers or principals.
This depends on what you are referring to, the field of study or the actual practice. Where I'm from, educational management as far as the field of study is training someone to be an educational supervisor, such as a principal or superintendent.
The actual practice of Educational Management is the ongoing study and implementation of educational law and regulations to ensure student growth and success. Typically this begins with the Superintendent and ends with the educational aides. These are the the people who are directly responsible for ensuring state and federal laws are complied with. Notice I said the ongoing study. State and federal educational laws are in a constant state of flux and educators must adapt and accommodate for these changes. The hierarchy within a local school district helps ensure these policies are carried out. If there is a breakdown in this system, the results can be disastrous. Just google school district investigated by ….and insert the name of your state agency. You will be amazed at some of the poorly run districts in our nation, but luckily we have a checks and balances system in place to catch these problems. And if your one of the very, very unfortunate school districts, you will have your local state agency come in and actually replace not only administrators, but the school board also. This is quite rare, though it happens. Hope this helps answer your question.
