Michigan State University says it's offering a new doctoral degree to train school superintendents and top education leaders to work with policymakers, parents and other groups.

The university is calling it the Doctor of Educational Leadership degree and says it "reflects a national trend among colleges of education to develop stronger, more relevant doctoral programs for professionals working in the field."

Michigan State says the program would target "current and aspiring K-12 administrators."

Professor Susan Printy says the program seeks to help students
learn skills needed to manage the fast-changing resources and
responsibilities in school systems.

The program opens in fall 2012 for up to 20 students.
