Politics and Educational Reform
Merritt, Richard L.; Coombs, Fred S.
Comparative Education Review, 21, 2/3, 247-73, Jun/Oct 77
Provides a brief analysis of educational policymaking processes in terms of how they underscore the political basis of educational decisions. Examines four approaches to explaining collective decisions--rational decisionmaking theory, pluralist theory, systems analysis, and cybernetic theory--to explore how each might relate in quite different ways, to questions of policy change and, more specifically, educational reform.
