Theory About What? Some More Thoughts About Theory in Educational Administration.
Greenfield, T. Barr
UCEA Review, v17 n2 pp4-9 Feb 1976
This article is a response to an earlier article, in which Daniel E. Griffiths argued that improved "homework" by organizational theorists offers a realistic prospect for establishing "a solid theoretical base for educational administration." This article argues that theory in administration treats the external trappings of organizations but fails to come to grips with their ideological content. The discussion focuses on four questions: 1) What are organizations? 2) What is theory in organizational studies? 3) How should organizational research proceed? and 4) What are the implications for training administrators?
