EDUC 572 - Schools as Organizations


Students and educators are members of an organization - the school. And beyond the classroom, teaching and learning is shaped by context. The school exists in an increasingly complex environment filled with significant and broad social, political, and cultural influences.  For successful student learning and school improvement efforts to take place, it is imperative to understand the constraints and enablers of action. This course introduces students to organizational theory and administrative/teacher leadership concepts.  Through critical  review and analysis, students are introduced to pertinent research with the intent of addressing problems of practice.   Special focus is placed on the work of schools, along with contemporary reform efforts and their organizational impact on teaching and learning.
