This article discusses the lack of awareness among school superintendents and school principals that the high schools they preside over have weaknesses in business education. Majority of school administrators possess training and experience in public secondary school work, but only very few have the qualifications to deal effectively with vocational education. Many principals have not taught any of the subjects that comprise a business program. There is a need for leadership in the area of secondary business education.
