From "Educational Administration" to "Efficient Management": The New Metaphor in Australian Education.
Beare, Hedley
This paper examines the status of educational administration (the way the public school systems are configured and managed) in Australia and New Zealand. To indicate the extent and nature of the administrative changes taking place in Australian education, three cameos are considered: New South Wales, Victoria, and the Commonwealth. The three case histories give an impression of constant upheaval, of rapid successions and political maneuvers and of policy turbulence. Illustrated is the kind of atmosphere within which public schools have operated during the decade of the 1980's. Eleven common features and trends are identified. (82 references) (SI)
