This study attempts to examine administrative programs and events in the tenure of Superintendent Dr. Larry D. Coble, who served the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School District in North Carolina from 1989-1993. The central focus of this investigation addresses four basic questions. First, were the goals set by the superintendent achieved? Specifically, were his goals of offering new leadership, providing openness in the administration, ensuring quality education for a neglected population, and addressing teachers major concerns achieved? Second, did reorganizing the system (a) enhance decision-making I and (b) improve students' test scores? Third, did the superintendent successfully deal with the controversial issues of (a) site-based management, and (b) tracking. And fourth, was the superintendent's interaction with subordinates effective?
