Evaluation as Scientific Management in U.S. School Reform.
House, Ernest R.
Comparative Education Review, v22 n3 p388-401 Oct 1978
In 1965, Robert Kennedy initiated federal evaluation policy with ESEA. His conception of political accountability was converted into a system of cost benefit analysis, which periodically justified funding curtailments. This systems approach, similar to Taylor's Scientific Management, is inadequate as the sole evaluation tool for federal programs. (SJL)
