A Tale of Two Schools--And the Primary Task of Leadership.
Maehr, Martin L.; Parker, Stephanie A.
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n3 p233-39 Nov 1993
School reform demands rethinking of schooling goals, culture, and leadership. Research evidence shows that "task" goals (stressing learning for its own sake) are preferable to "ability" goals (stressing learning as means to an end). School policies and practices must be redefined according to the learning task, degree of student autonomy, evaluation and resource distribution, grouping models, and time management. (MLH)
