Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Drawing from research on private sector management, organizational behavior, and industrial relations, as well as research on schools themselves and on the actual work of teachers within schools, the authors call for a restructuring of the division of labor that assigns teachers considerable discretionary decisionmaking authority within their classrooms but affords them little voice in the larger organizational decisions that affect their classrooms.
