Pathways and Pitfalls in Introducing Change.
Howes, Kimball L.
Brief case studies are examined to show that change can be motivated by almost any part of the educational organization and that the degree of the change's success or failure depends to a large extent on the political environment existing within the school and the school district. Some recent examples in pertinent literature are examined, and some reflections on the "hows and whys" of change, from the perspective of both the principal and the superintendent, are made in considering possible change techniques and in demonstrating the need for honest introspection. General philosophical comments on the author's biases about the problems and pitfalls of change conclude the speech. (Author/MLF)
