Conflict Amid Community: The Micropolitics of Teacher Collaboration.
Achinstein, Betty
Teachers College Record, v104 n3 p421-55 Apr 2002
Uses micropolitical and organizational theory to examine teacher communities. Data from case studies of two urban middle schools show that when teachers enact collaborative reforms in the name of community, conflict often emerges. Results indicate that conflict is central to community, and how teachers manage conflict defines community borders and the potential for organizational learning and change. (Contains references.)
