Politics in Educational Planning. IIEP Occasional Papers No. 19.
El-Ghannam, Mohamed A.
Planning (including educational planning) is by nature a political activity. Educational planning begins with, operates through, and ends with politics. Since politics is a crucial factor in determining the nature and effectiveness of a plan, to be efficient planners, management personnel and other planners should study politics and calculate the political factors. Because planning is a political activity, it produces political consequences. Planners should be aware of these consequences and use them as feedback for further planning activities.
