An Overview of Management Science in Educational Research.
Management science is defined as the basic process or function of rational decision making. The concept of educational research is expanded to include use of new management techniques developed by the private sector which are adaptable to decision making in the total educational context. Four trends in the field of educational research are briefly reviewed: (1) Increasing use of scientific problem-solving methods, (2) increasing use of management information systems, (3) increasing emphasis on longrange planning to correlate the educational system with political, economic, and social subsystems for more effective human resource development, and (4) increasing use of systems concepts.
