The article discusses research which determined the scope in which interstate licensing policy for school superintendents was homogeneous in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. The research also aims to investigate the scope in which interstate and intrastate preparation program requirements were homogenous and the possible influence of licensing criteria, institutional accreditation and professional accreditation on preparation program requirements. It references related research on criticisms of superintendent preparation. A discussion on the role and function of professional standards boards in the three states is offered.
