He has published numerous articles, reports and pieces on the management and organization of schools; the problem of under-qualified teachers; the debate over school accountability; the problems of teacher turnover and teacher shortages; the status of teaching as a profession; and the degree to which schools are centralized or decentralized and its impact on school performance.
