Applying Hofstede's Cross-Cultural Theory of Organizations to School Governance: A French Case Study.
Fowler, Frances C.
This paper applies Geert Hofstede's cross-cultural theory of organizational structure and behavior to school administration, examining the governance structure of the French public school system to determine how accurately it predicts the form of that educational organization. The first section of the paper presents Hofstede's theory and his findings on French organizational attitudes. Next, the paper describes methodology for the study which is based on a re-analysis of data gathered over the course of 15 years. It then presents findings. Finally, the paper closes with a general discussion of the predictive power of Hofstede's theory when applied to the French case study data. Contains 21 references. Appendixes contain 6 figures. (BT)
