The Institutional and Social Context of Teaching.
This paper discusses the links among (1) schools' formal organizational structures; (2) the interactions of administrators and faculties; and (3) the patterns of thinking that grow from these interactions. These in turn have consequences for teacher-student interactions, and ultimately effect the cognitive development of students. Each of these levels of school functioning is nested within the next, in an organic unity, which accounts for the resistance of school to reform and innovation. The implications for educational research and practice is discussed, both in theoretical and practical terms. (Author)
