Open Systems Approach--Can It Work for Public School Organizations?
Wolfe, A. E.
The problem of public school education in today's environment is presented, and a case is made for restructuring public school organizations and/or management processes along the pattern of an open systems approach. The closed system of operating allows externalities to impact on it, and there is a continuing emphasis on reacting. With the benefit of modern technologies in communications, science, educational techniques, and data processing, the closed operational system can move to an open sociotechnical system that allows for more responsiveness to externalities and changes from a reactive to an active planning mode.
