Pattern Maintenance and Change in Education


by Ralph W. Larkin 1970

In an effort to clarify the relationship between the public schools and society, Professor Ralph Larkin, Center for the Study of Evaluation, UCLA Graduate School of Education, uses a structural-functional approach. The bureaucratic nature of the educational institution, together with the functions assigned to it by society, make the system more a passive agent for change, a situation that he sees will not change until the schools are given different responsibilities and granted greater autonomy. The research for this article was supported by a grant from the U.S. Office of Education.
