Deadwood Didn't Kill Itself: A Pathology of Failing Schools.
Fink, Dean
Educational Management & Administration, v27 n2 p131-41 Apr 1999
During the 1990s, the school has become the center of blame. Policymakers seem more interested in identifying failing schools than celebrating successes. This paper uses case-study research on a once-innovative Ontario high school to show that "deadwood" schools do not kill themselves, but need outsiders' help. (42 references) (MLH)
