Reflections on Leadership Characteristics Necessary To Develop and Sustain Learning School Communities.
Diggins, Patrick B.
School Leadership & Management, v17 n3 p413-25 Oct 1997
Reflects on what schools must do to become genuine learning organizations. Traditional organizational culture was typically inward looking, centralized, and insular. Bureaucratic systems make schools structurally ineffective. Mintzberg's varied government and normative-control models are less suitable for education than Alfred C. Crane's constitutional leadership model, based on character, vision, exemplary behavior, and confidence. (17 references) (MLH)
