The elementary principal today sees increasing emphasis placed upon supervision as a means of improving the instructional program for children. Just as business has recognized that supervision is a wise investment and a. necessity, so has education come to realize the value of proper supervision by a capable principal. "It any person in a supervisory position is not contributing to more effective learning the classroom, his existence in that posit ion cannot be justified." If it is true that, "the most effective way of supervising has not yet been determined" then it appears that find ing more effective supervisory practices is one of the larger problems that faces the elementary principal.
