  • Blau and Scott (1962) supporting the notion of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts in terms of the school as a social organisation
  • “Social organizations thrive when their life-worlds drive the systemsworld and suffer when the systemsworld colonizes the lifeworld” p. 153
  • Change forces: bureaucratic, personal, market, professional, cultural, and democratic
  • Professional, cultural and democratic forces are more likely to bring about deep change in schools
  • “Choosing a change force makes a statement about how governors, legislators, and other policymakers view people, their capacities, their moral prpensities, and their motivational nature” p. 156 (Re. theories of human nature – restrained/unrestrained)
  • Professional, cultural, and democratic change forces all share the purpose of building community in schools as a means of implementinmg deep changes. When used together the three change forces seek to transform schools from organizations or markets to professional, learning, and democratic communities” (p. 160)
  • Interesting the idea of market ideas perhaps being applicable to a community viewif choice were viewed as a civic concept in serving the common good
