This paper proposes a study to assess and compare two groups of administrators' perceptions of the philosophy of making schools more cost-effective by linking job performance with school objectives and goals. It examines how the comparison groups are a group of administrators working at schools in California and a group of administrators working at schools in Trinidad (West Indies).

From the Paper:

"With respect to the foregoing, Douglass (2000) reports that the history of education in California is one that has strong ideological components rooted in both democracy and capitalism. On the other hand, in Trinidad, the history of school is very much linked to spiritual and religious ideologies and philosophies (see: Government of Trinidad and Tobago, 2000). It is possible that this difference in cultural background may make the notion of operating schools as a business one that is inherently more appealing to California administrators than to administrators working in Trinidad."
