Management Systems in Education.
Wagner, Ivan D.
Management systems have been adapted for educational administration in response to the need for quality of educational opportunity, collective bargaining, school district consolidation, decreasing enrollments, accountability laws, limited financial resources, and participatory decision-making. Management systems adapted, not adopted, from business should include school philosophy, needs assessment, goal statements, organizational structure, objectives, methods and strategies, evaluation, reporting, and evidence of accomplishment. With these components, benefits in providing organizational self-renewal, developing productive involvement, organizing and managing change, establishing accountability, and gaining feedback can be expected. However, the success of any management system begins with acceptance, understanding, and competence in adapting the system to individual roles. (Author/DW)
