Opportunities Taken, Lost or Avoided: The Use of Difference of Opinion in School Decision Making
Legget, Bridget M.; Campbell-Evans, Glenda; Gray, Jan
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v39 n4 Article 7 Apr 2014
In this paper the authors report on an exploratory investigation into the use of disequilibrium and difference of opinion in decision-making in schools, based on the experiences of Master of Education students in their own university. From examples provided by the participants the authors identify the factors that contribute to the positive use of difference of opinion, and those that limit or constrain its use. They then discuss the implications of the findings for the curriculum of the degree in which the participants are enrolled.
