The Design of (Educational) Policy: Directing and Harnessing Social Power for Social Outcomes.
Bhola, H. S.
This paper presents a conceptualization that interprets the processes of policymaking, institution building, and change planning as aspects of the same generic phenomenon of cultural action. Central to this conceptualization is a view of power that explains the dynamics of these related processes while it demonstrates their integral unity. The sole intent of the policymaking process is asserted to be the directing and harnessing of social power for social outcomes. (Author/WM)
