Site-Based Management versus Systems-Based Thinking: The Impact of Data-Driven Accountability and Reform
Mette, Ian M.; Bengtson, Ed
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v18 n1 p27-38 Mar 2015
This case was written to help prepare building-level and central office administrators who are expected to effectively lead schools and systems in an often tumultuous world of educational accountability and reform. The intent of this case study is to allow educators to examine the impact data management has on the types of thinking required when leading school systems, particularly in larger school districts. Educators studying this case should examine the strengths and weaknesses of site-based management as well as systems-based thinking--specifically how both can play a role in how schools and school systems are led in the age of accountability and reform.
