School Management and Effectiveness in Developing Countries: The Post-bureaucratic School
Cassell, 1997 - Administration scolaire - Pays en voie de développement - 189 pages
Describing and analyzing the way in which schools operate in developing countries, this work also sets out to explain why they are as they are. It looks at the existing economic and theoretical contexts of school effectiveness, including an exploration of the causes of economic crisis and its impact on school management. The jobs of various head teachers are detailed, and the authors argue for the democratization of schools as the only way forward for effective worldwide education. Case studies from Kenya, Thailand, Cuba, Ghana and elsewhere are included.
