  • Descrizione: this chapter uses concepts as mission, purpose, values, and beliefs to approximate the meaning behind the myth or core story to get to the deeper calling, higher worth, or greater cause of an educational enterprise. at the hub of a school's culture are its mission and purpose‐the revered focus underlying what people believe, think, and do. mission and purpose shape and reflect what the school hopes to accomplish, desires that vary from place to place. study after study has reinforced the power of a shared sense of mission to guide decisions, motivate innovation, strengthen commitment to the calling of education, and energize collaboration. these missions can run from the mundane to the deeply purposeful, virtually spiritual. myth, mission, and purpose give generalized guidance to what people work toward on a daily and weekly basis. some reformers in recent memory have concentrated on the demystification of schools: to get better, make them more rational and narrow.
