Instituting PPBS in Schools: A Comparison of Two Districts.
Goldman, Paul; Gregory, Sundra
Teacher reaction to the institution of a planning-programming-budgeting system (PPBS) was surveyed through a structured but open-ended interview in two school districts. Results showed that the mere introduction of new bureaucratic documents for completion by teachers generated only mild negative reaction and no real sense that teacher autonomy was threatened. The highly participative implementation style in one district generated new enthusiasm and work patterns while the administrative decision-making style in the other engendered indifference to the innovation. The system was seen as curriculum-oriented in the former and management-oriented in the latter. (Author)
