Images of Leadership.
Bolman, Lee G.; Deal, Terrence E.
American School Board Journal, v179 n4 p36-39 Apr 1992
Research suggests four different metaphors of schools as organizations: (1) factory; (2) family; (3) jungle; and (4) cathedral. Each implies a leadership role and an ethical responsibility for board members. Integrating all four images might help provide a better map of the board's governance task and improve the board's ability to make wise decisions. (MLF)
