The Learning School: An Organisation Development Approach
Addressing the challenge of developing effective schools in this daunting yet exciting period of transformation in South Africa, this book aims to provide some insights and guidelines on how to proceed with school development. The values at the heart of this book are those central to a democratic South Africa and include the exercise of basic human rights by all individuals, a fair distribution of resources, participative decision making, access to necessary information on the part of people affected, and accountability on the part of those in authority. This is a handbook for principals, teachers, and other persons or groups interested in the holistic development of schools--particularly within the context of a developing South Africa.
