We cannot overlook the fact that educational management is one
of the main factors of progress and innovation in the education
system. Without managers able to produce the desired changes and
to stir the development of educational services, the genuine
reform would not be a viable process. The decisions principals
have to take should target efficiency and effectiveness in the
management process. The school is committed to provide students
with a challenging and stimulating learning and practical
training environment, generated by the needs, learning style and
individual aspirations, creating thus a lifelong desire to learn
and improve. From the stand point of the position, the principal
is always in contact with various categories of staff (students'
parents, students, teaching staff, principals of other schools,
health professionals, businesses, etc.). This fact facilitates a
feedback on how the establishment the manager represents is
regarded within the local, regional community.
Key words: Educational management, profession of a
manager, education, training, leader.
