Toward the Creation of Satisfying Work Places.
Goodlad, John I.
The self-interests of the primary participants in the school and the common welfare as represented in the improvement of the American educational system are most likely to become one in the process of improving the school as a work place. This strategy was explored in the form of a collaborative enterprise. Eighteen schools in southern California and the research division of the Institute for Development of Educational Activities, Inc., (IDEA), engaged in the internal process of self-renewal in each school through sustained dialogue, decision-making, action, and evaluation on the part of the entire faculty under the leadership of the principal. This involved a network of schools within which ideas, resources, and practices were developed and exchanged; a continuous self-directed seminar in which the principals discussed their problems and developed necessary leadership understandings, and skills; and a variety of pedagogical interchanges for teachers.
