A Systems Approach to School Reform.
McAdams, Richard P.
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n2 p138-42 Oct 1997
Summarizes leading scholars' findings in leadership theory, local politics and government, state and national school politics, and change theory. Integrating this knowledge into a systematic reform effort requires superintendents with integrity and vision; political stability; good board/superintendent relations; long-term, statewide commitment; and deep understanding of systems thinking and change theory.
