School Reform and Schools as Organizations.
Willower, Donald J.
Journal of School Leadership, v1 n4 p305-15 Oct 1991
Schools' characteristics obstruct reform because teacher and student norms and values are at variance with one another. Because most reforms gobble teacher time, reduce teacher autonomy, and disturb current routines, they frequently fail. Chances for success will improve when context or reforms directly addressing organizational features are considered. (13 references) (MLH)
