Demands for improved quality in education here led to a rapid paradigm shift. The incompatibility between emerging and current paradigms might be addressed, according to this paper, by adaptation of Total Quality Management (TQM), a successful business strategy, to teaching. The author researched four U.S. schools recognised for their quality education, and argues from the findings that although TQM is not a quick fix, it can provide an alternative to entrenched autocratic thinking about schools.
