Structures and Roles in Organizational Behavior

March 1995 | 424 pages | Corwin
The current debate in the United States over education reform, particularly school restructuring, is essentially over which strategy of organization will achieve the best result: Accountability versus autonomy; empowerment versus centralization; or standardization versus flexibility? This innovative book applies analytical perspectives from organizational theory to education. The results will help school administrators develop more effective strategies and tactics.
