The School Board and a Model for Educational Improvement. Practical Paper No. 10.
Kreitlow, Burton W.; MacNeil, Teresa
This model is proposed as an instrument for describing the process of change in school systems. It is a composite of ideas derived from the findings of researchers in the fields of agriculture and education, and from authors' observations of the change process in five Wisconsin school districts. The model describes the flow of the change process in a school system, and allows for the fact that ideas for improvement may either be supplied to, demanded by, or originated within, the school system. It also underscores the importance of interaction among all the major entities (school board members, administrators, teachers, and citizens) within the system if there is to be optimum commitment to decisions for improvement.
