Influences of Shared Decision Making on School and Classroom Activity: Conversations with Five Teachers.
Griffin, Gary A.
Elementary School Journal, v96 n1 p29-45 Sep 1995
Reports five teachers' perceptions of how teacher participation in school decision making has affected school and classroom activities. Discusses the consequences in terms of teachers' beliefs about their own competence, the persistence of the culture of teacher isolation, prevailing forms of politesse, professional educators' uncertainty about what constitutes excellence in schools, and information and decision-making overload.
