Conceptions of Curriculum and Paradigms for Research: The Case of School Effectiveness Studies.
Reid, William A.
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v12 n3 p212-27 Spr 1997
Development of school-effectiveness-research models owes little to academic progress or scholarly critique. Effectiveness is measured in terms of fashionable production expectations. In the postwar years, schools produced economic growth. In the 1970s, they produced equality and good citizens. In the 1980s, schools produced good employees. Is "quality" the next "transcendental signified" to anchor effectiveness research? (33 footnotes) (MLH)
