The SAGE Handbook of School Organization provides a substantial review of the history, current status and future prospects of the field of school organization. Bringing together chapters exploring key issues, important debates and points of tension, the Handbook highlights school and system organisational structure, processes and dynamics coupled with insights into important theoretical foundations from diverse perspectives.
This volume is designed to provide a much-needed, critically informed and coherent account of the field, against a backdrop of increasing complexity in which schooling as an institution and schools as organisations operate.
The application of Organization Theory to Education has been a somewhat neglected area of study in recent years. Yet with so many school systems undergoing radical change it has never been more relevant. This volume draws on the expertise of a highly respected group of authors and promises to be a comprehensive and significant overview of the field.
