The paradox of organisation (school) networks
Sep 06, 2018 09:30 AM
End: Sep 06, 2018 12:30 PM
Location: Committee Room 1, UCL Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way London WC1H 0AL
Across the public services, networks are introduced as a new organisational form to improve service provision. The purpose of these new organisational forms is to ensure and guarantee educational quality and equity in a territory.
Examples are the Local Public Education Services (SLE) in Chile which are set up to organise networks of pedagogical and management support of schools.
This seminar will reflect on the increasing prevalence and unique value proposition of networks, discuss the tension between the increased benefits for end user and the decreased sovereignty for network members (e.g. schools), and talk about the role of evaluation and accountability in resolving this paradox.
