Eviscerating education through deliverology. " The Daily Blog

Scroll down to this critique of Michael Barber:

‘“Deliverology” is a means to systematically demoralize and humiliate people in lieu of not being able to convince them to pursue a course of action. It is based on the fundamentally flawed idea that an organization or institution can be improved by “incentivizing” people to meet “targets” or what Achieve, Inc., insists educators obsess over: “benchmarks”. It is an autocratic, command-and-control management system that redefines public institutions (such as public schools) as factories, and displays an almost single-minded fixation on cost reduction. Deliverology is a means for transforming the goal of public institutions from meeting public needs to meeting arbitrary “production” “benchmarks” established by the autocrat under the hoax of saving taxpayer’s money.’ (Mark Garrison) - See more at: http://thedailyblog.co.nz/2013/10/24/eviscerating-education-through-deliverology/#sthash.jM8vJasM.dpuf
