In this, the Walter D. Cocking Lecture for 1975, the author examines the emerging relationship between the professor of educational administration and the state governance of education in the U.S.A. The paper is developed around five critical issues, (1) increasingly major decisions for education will be made at the state level, (2) educators will have less autonomy in making these decisions, (3) many professors are essentially school district oriented with little sense of state action, (4) professors need additional understanding and appreciation of state level policy making, and (5) this increased understanding and appreciation should lead to revised programs for research and training in educational administration.
