Abstract

This study represents an attempt to answer the question: How can educational administration contribute to the economic and social development plans in developing countries? Although major emphasis must be given to this question, some

thought will be given to the educational problems and needs that face developing countries and the new techniques of educational administration which can be used to meet them. Moreover, in an attempt to apply the findings acquired the research will eventually focus on· Egypt, as one of the developing countries, to identify to what extent Egypt's educational administration addresses the needs of the economic and social development plans.

Objectives of the Study

The purpose of the study was fourfold as follows:

1. To investigate the role of educational administration in the economic and social development plans in developing countries.

2. To delineate the educational problems and needs of developing countries and to determine how educational administration can help to meet them.

3. To identify new trends and techniques in educational administration which may be helpful to the economic and social development plans in developing countries.

4. To develop a case study and some models which will provide direction to educational administrators who wish to contribute to Egypt's economic and social development plans.
