The Initial Stage of a School's Capacity Building
Stocklin, Sacha
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v38 n4 p443-453 Jul 2010
The rationale of this article is that schools and their leaders need to establish and formalize a system which focuses on integrating staff effectively into the organization's community and instituting esteem and competency. Competent educators in a professional community constitute two of the three dimensions that build the capacity to create high-performing educational institutions. This case study which was conducted in an international hotel management school in Switzerland, first, analyses and criticizes the existing program and, second, explains the technique by which any organization can begin constructing the two dimensions of its capacity building by looking at different components of a faculty's integration. The intention of this study is to provide suggestions to school leaders that could be applied to improve their own educational institution. (Contains 1 figure.)
