A Co-Construction Perspective on Organizational Change and Educational Reform


by Hugh Mehan, Lea Hubbard & Amanda Datnow 2010

This chapter explains and expands on the co-construction perspective using examples from studies the authors have conducted on educational reform. They begin by contrasting the technical-rational and co-construction perspectives on school reform. They then describe how their formulation of co-construction takes into account issues of power and authority. The authors then elaborate on the perspective by presenting different cases of co-construction of reforms by actors at different levels of the educational system.
