Report of the Study Group on Organizational Change and Adaptation to the National Institute of Education.
Crecine, John P.
This report discusses the importance of research on the ways in which educational institutions develop and adapt to their environments and examines three different approaches for conducting such research. Most of the report is organized into three major sections, each of which focuses on a different method of organizing and structuring research on the adaptiveness of educational systems. The first section discusses using theories of organization and innovation in social systems as the basis for organizing research. The second section examines the approach of focusing on a set of processes that seem fundamental to the understanding of a particular educational system. The third section discusses the approach of exploring specific educational policies and their implications. (Author/JG)
