"This excerpt from Rebecca Barr and Robert
Dreebenâ€™s book, How Schools Work, discusses
the functioning of schools and classrooms.
The authors examine different levels
of Organization (units of analysis) from district
offices to instructional groups in classrooms;
they identify distinct events that take
place in each unit, and how what happens
in one unit affects others. They also discuss
the roles and division of labor of some participants.
Within classrooms there are instructional groups, often by ability level of students. Organization of time is another determinant of how schools work. From the length of the class period and day to the number of days in a year, the way time is structured affects opportunities to learn. The importance of this excerpt is in providing the methods and framework needed to understand the organization of educational systems and how schools work."
