Change Literature and the Practicing School Administrator.
Maguire, Louis M.
Based on a review of 500 sources dealing with change, this presentation sets forth the practical applications of change literature for school administrators. The report concludes that change is a term neither commonly used nor commonly understood, and that ther e exist few scientifically developed (i.e., theoretically based and empirically tested and revised) tools to operationalize change. The presentation provides a realistic focus on various suggestions, prescriptions, and models for bringing about change in local school districts. (Related documents are EA 002 947 and EA 002 949).
