The primary purpose of this study was to investigate the perceptions of a random sample of local teachers association presidents in selected unified school districts in Kansas relative to the priorities of competencies in educational administration which they believe superintendents should possess. A secondary purpose was to investigate the relationship between these perceptions and the various characteristics of educational administrators according to age, teaching experience, student enrollment, education and sex. A related purpose was to make a comparison of this study with studies made by Harvey S. Loy titled, "A Study of Priorities of Competencies in Educational Administration as Perceived by Randomly Selected Superintendents of Unified School Districts in Kansas, " and by Dorrell George titled, “A Study of the Priority of Selecting and Evaluating a Superintendent as Perceived by Presidents of Unified School Districts in Kansas."
