Mitchell, Douglas E.
This report examines the impact of certain key features of schooling organizations on student outcomes with specific attention to three key concepts: expectation, evaluation, and reward. Previous research on schooling outcomes is reviewed and complemented by the presentation of a theory (based on Parsonian concepts of social action) of school organization informed by symbolic action theories. Concluding the report is a research agenda wherein questions, strategies, and approaches appropriate for studying this area are examined. (Author/WP)
