Summary

Purpose shapes vision and vision shapes purpose. Any reasonable effort to restructure schools must begin with a serious consideration of the purposes of education. In chapter 1, purpose in the life of organizations is examined. Chapter 2 shows how historical circumstances have shaped both the purpose and the structure of schools. Chapter 3 discusses the need for a reformulation of the purpose of schools. Chapter 4 explains how the suggested vision relates to such restructuring efforts as participatory leadership, accountability, and assessment of schools in general. Chapter 5 provides a framework for considering the structural elements that need to be changed. Staffing, distribution of knowledge, and use of time and space are addressed. Chapter 6 discusses change from a marketing perspective, using concepts from the field of marketing that are relevant to research about the change process. Chapter 7 is about creating systems to change systems. Chapter 8 considers the evaluation of performance and the advantages of results-oriented management. Chapter 9 presents specific steps that a superintendent can take to bring about restructuring of a district. Chapter 10 suggests strategies for sustaining improvements once they are in place. (Contains 47 references.) (RKJ)
