The Role of Communication in Providing Leadership for School Restructuring.
Kowalski, Theodore J.
Mid-Western Educational Researcher, v11 n1 p32-40 Win 1998
Educational reform now focuses largely on school restructuring, making transformational leadership and cultural change models critical issues for school administrators. Both concepts are inextricably linked to communication. Consequently, leadership for change requires a knowledge base in leadership, organizational theory, and communication theory. Recommends research on communication in schools and the inclusion of communication theory in school administrators' education. (Author/SV)
