Structure, agency and school effectiveness: researching a 'failing' school
UNSPECIFIED. (1999) Structure, agency and school effectiveness: researching a 'failing' school. EDUCATIONAL STUDIES, 25 (1). pp. 5-18. ISSN 0305-5698Full text not available from this repository.
Qualitative data of a 'failing' junior school are used to highlight the ways in which a particular Local Education Authority (LEA) responded to 'serious weaknesses' outlined by a team of Office for Standards in Education inspectors and how staff mediated such LEA intervention. Such mediation will be theorised via the employment of analytical dualism, whereby structure and agency are held to be irreducible emergent strata of social reality. The purpose of this paper is not to complement and buttress the ideological nature of school effectiveness research, but to provide a micro insight into current mediation of macro-level policy.
