Education has increasingly turned to business for its management theory and in this work, Mike Bottery questions the appropriateness of this relationship. He looks at what education has to learn from business, but also at the limitations which can be imposed by importing too literally ideas from business to education. The book views education as fundamentally concerned with the development of caring, responsible, informed and critical citizens, and argues that the management of schools must be structured to achieve these aims. This being the case, it is not enough to adopt in a wholesale manner the theories or other disciplines like business management, nor can such concerns as effectiveness and efficiency be the major preoccupation. Instead, it argues, education management must be based on personal, social and political concerns. This work is aimed at those involved in the local management of schools, those running and attending courses on school management, teachers, policy-makers and politicians.
