The Politics of Reforming School Administration. The 1988 Yearbook of the Politics of Education Association. Education Policy Perspectives Series.
Hannaway, Jane, Ed.; Crawson, Robert, Ed.
The chapters in this yearbook examine the politics of reforming school administration from both top-down and bottom-up perspectives. The chapters are arranged in three parts. In part 1, state-level reform initiatives are examined, with legislation-into-practice questions about the impact of reform upon local schools and local administrators. Part 2 explores the micropolitics of reform within schools, for it is ultimately within this context that basic changes in educational administration will have to occur. In part 3, the politics of reforming the profession itself is addressed by exploring the actors, the interests, and the incentives involved in a heated, contemporary debate regarding the training of the nation's cadre of school administrators. References are included with chapters. A list of contributors with brief biographies is provided. (JAM)
