Teaching Political Analysis: A Framework
Edlefson, Carla
Mid-Western Educational Researcher, v23 n4 p14-19 Fall 2010
A framework using concepts from systems theory, theories of power, and the garbage can model of decision-making was developed for the purpose of teaching aspiring school administrators to analyze situations using a political lens. The framework is demonstrated in an analysis of the process that led to Ohio's establishing a school facilities funding program. The framework is then used to illustrate an example of a graduate class assignment requiring analysis of a situation a new principal might face. (Contains 1 figure.)
