Metaphors As Storehouses of Expectation.
Beavis, Allan K.; Thomas, A. Ross
Educational Management & Administration, v24 n1 p93-106 Jan 1996
Explores how metaphors are used to identify and store some expectations that structure schools' interactions and communications. Outlines a systems-theoretical view of schools derived from Niklas Luhmann's social theories. Illustrates how the metaphors identified in an earlier study provide material contexts for identifying and storing structures to guarantee the stability of a school's identity. (31 references) (MLH)
