What Schools Can Learn From Corporations

WHAT SCHOOLS CAN LEARN FROM CORPORATIONS

Your article on "Theodore Sizer's mandate to mend mindless schools" (Top of the News, Jan. 10) has strong similarities to your previous article on "The horizontal corporation." Sizer's team approach appears as another manifestation of customer-driven, self-managed teams organized around the learning process in a flattened hierarchy. The students, colleges, and industry are the customers. The complaints of teachers and administrators have the same ring as those in industry fighting change. The way of the 1990s seems transferable to many paths of today's culture.
