Policy decision-making in respect of some aspects of staffing in non-government schools : a case study

  • Joseph McCabe

    Student thesis: Master's Thesis


    Using ‘policy studies’ research the case study looks at how an organization of teaching brothers, the members of the Sydney Province of the Marist Brothers, reacted to influences which bore upon its organizational structure, its morale and its educational activities, particularly in schools. After establishing the relevance of policy research to educational administration and to this type of case study in particular the discussion by using various types of models moves to an analysis of the specific case study. This has to do with how a reduction in the number of teaching brothers in schools and also changing attitudes about its part in education was managed by the Sydney Province and how, why and what type of policy emerged in response to these factors. Generally this field study concerns itself in judging the adequacy of policy studies research in applications to educational administration.
