Politics, Bureaucrats, and Schools.
Smith, Kevin B.; Meier, Kenneth J.
Public Administration Review, v54 n6 p551-58 Nov-Dec 1994
Examines the role of bureaucracy in the educational performance of public school students. Indicates that bureaucracies develop because school systems need administrators and administrative capacities to function effectively. Suggests that reducing bureaucracy will impose administrative tasks on teachers and will likely impair their performance rather than improve it. (Author/JOW)
