Tooley, Stuart (2004) Revisiting organisational change in the New Zeland compulsory education sector: A critical theory analysis of the imposition of managerial values and rationality. Society and Economy, 26(2-3), pp. 407-430.

Abstract

Presenting the critical theory model of societal development and identifying societal steering media as an important element in it, the paper analyses the forces at play in the reform of the wider public sector, in an economic, political and ideological context, and details the key features of the New Zealand compulsory educational system, including the introduction and application of managerial values and rationality. Concluding the article focuses on the possible range of responses of key actors in the educational process to change.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
