Perspectives for school information systems
AbstractThe development of information systems is often considered, overtly or covertly, in the context of large organisations. Schools, as organisations, need to confront many of the same problems in the development of appropriate information systems but also suffer from difficulties as a result of their size and their organisational nature. This paper attempts to provide an organisational perspective of the difficulties that schools face in developing an information system, the scope of such information systems and the directions in which schools have moved in implementing information systems.
