Towards Comparative Educational Administration: Building the Case for a Cross-Cultural School-Based Approach.
Dimmock, Clive; Walker, Allan
Journal of Educational Administration, v36 n3-4 p379-401 1998
Advocates a stronger comparative emphasis in the study of educational administration and management while acknowledging comparative educational administration's weak knowledge base. Clarifies the potential import of a comparative, cross-cultural perspective embracing five societal/cultural dimensions: individualism versus collectivism, power distance, uncertainty avoidance, masculinity versus femininity, and Confucian dynamism.
