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?
