Future Directions: An Alternate Organizational Lens on Middle-of-the-Road Education Reforms
Mercado-Garcia, Diana
Democracy & Education, v25 n2 Article 6 2017
This essay response critically examines and expands on the arguments put forth by the authors of "Navigating Middle-of-the-Road Reforms through Collaborative Community." Using organizational theory, the paper clarifies questions about the theoretical construct of collaborative community and middle-of-the-road reforms. It concludes by offering two paths for further study that focus on exploring the various levels of democratizing influence enacted by the policy tensions the authors described and by suggesting a closer examination of the resulting organizational responses. [This article is a response to "Navigating Middle of the Road Reforms through Collaborative Community," EJ1162555.]
