School Superintendents, Crisis Management and Institutional Organisations Theory.
Ziolkowsky, George A.; Willower, Donald J.
Journal of Educational Administration, v29 n2 p50-60 1991
When interviewed about school personnel's serious misconduct incidents, 50 superintendents indicated they case managed the incidents, mindful of due process. Comparisons were made with a previous study of principals. Results suggested that institutional organizations theory's blanket emphasis on ritualistic legitimation, the logic of confidence, and normative assessment of schools is too strong.
