The following books and articles include the reading list prepared for my school management case study course at Northwestern University's School of Education and Social Policy and Graduate School of Management. To that list, originally published in Improving School Performance ( Praeger, 1983), I have added books and articles on the origins of school management, school reform, and general management, and handbooks on implementation.
