Transmission Versus Transformation: A Qualitative Case Study and Critique of the Glasser Quality School Model.
Blair, Kevin D.
Journal for a Just and Caring Education, v5 n3 p298-317 Jul 1999
This qualitative case study follows unsuccessful efforts of a school social worker and faculty to implement William Glasser's quality-school model in a working-class, suburban middle school. Diminishing the use of competition was the fundamental sticking-point for those opposing the model's implementation. (22 references) (MLH)
