Punctuated Legitimacy: A Theory of Educational Change.
Gold, Barry Allen
Teachers College Record, v101 n2 p192-219 Win 1999
Presents a theory of educational change grounded in 23 years of qualitative data from one elementary school, interpreting patterns of change using the punctuated equilibrium theory of organizational change, in which short periods of revolutionary change (usually following failed innovation) are followed by long periods of equilibrium or incremental change. Punctuated legitimacy was the major factor producing significant organizational change. (SM)
