Observing Different Attitudes in School Restructuring: Elementary vs. Secondary.
Jenni, Roger W.
Findings of a study that examined the implementation of school-based management in an elementary and a secondary school are presented in this paper. The study attempted to identify certain phenomena that might be directly linked to attitudes or perceptions generated specifically by the differences inherent in elementary-secondary school settings. Over a 6-year period, data were collected through interviews with personnel at the two sites, document analysis, surveys, and observations. Findings indicate that although there were considerable organizational differences, few, if any, factors distinguished the adaptation of school-based management in an elementary setting from that of a secondary setting. However, the factors that influenced contrasting attributes appeared to lie outside the realm of elementary-secondary school differences. (Contains 38 references.) (LMI)
