Mitchell, Douglas E.
Peabody Journal of Education, v63 n3 p29-45 Spr 1986
This article emanates from a study of urban school teachers and administrators and discusses metaphors for the kinds of management styles encountered at a variety of schools. The intellectual histories of each type of management style--machinistic, organistic, market place, or conversational--are described and their educational applications are discussed. (JL)
