This book offers a comprehensive analysis and description of the political aspects of American education, utilizing both empirical data and case studies on the politics of education. Included are two case studies of recent school policies, which focus on the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (esea) of 1965 and the school desegregation movement. There is also a review of the literature that describes the work of political scientists and scholars in educational administration and suggests directions for further research. This book was previously published under the title, "The Political Web of American Schools"; this current edition has been updated to include an analysis of school governance under conditions of declining enrollment and resources. Individual chapters focus in turn on schools and the political system, schools and system support, the origins and agents of demand inputs, access channels to school policy-making, the local conversion process, the role of referenda in the conversion process, the state conversion process, the esea and intergovernmental relations, southern school desegregation, curricular decisions in the political system, and the politics of schools in retrospect and prospect.

Governance of elementary and secondary education by Michael W Kirst( Book )

4 editions published between 1976 and 1987 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Local control is emphasized in this examination of the roles of state, federal, and local governments in education policy and change. Federal and state role priorities should be to provide resources and stimulation for the major decisions and changes at the school site. The role of the state in school district governance, which has steadily been increasing, can be diminished. Collective bargaining reforms and school site governance would do a great deal to overcome the need for detailed state regulations. The federal government, as well as the state governments, can assist local districts and individual schools with grant moneys. The author proposes a governance plan that meets these requirements and that recognizes that it is the school, rather than the entire district, which is the critical nexus between the child and the substance of education.

Governing public schools : new times, new requirements by Jacqueline Danzberger( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of the local school board in delivering quality education is examined in this booklet, which provides a set of expectations and principles for drastic change in the role and operation of school boards. Now that fundamental, systemic change is being called for, the performance of school boards is under greater scrutiny. Following the preface and introduction, chapter 1 analyzes national trends in changes external to schooling and new demands placed upon schools and their boards by business and other leadership sectors. The interrelationships between education and other children's services for children's success are also explored. Chapter 2 examines reform strategies of the 1980s, particularly those implemented by Kentucky and Chicago. The major theme of these reforms was the intensification of the existing system rather than restructuring. Chapter 3 discusses state-local relations, and the fourth chapter presents governance lessons from Canada, Great Britain, and Japan. The fifth chapter presents findings of a survey conducted from 1988-90 of 266 school boards from 16 states. Superintendents from 128 of the districts completed a questionnaire. The results indicate that local boards are weakest in the areas necessary for effectiveness in changed school systems. Chapter 6 offers conclusions and recommendations for improving board performance and endorses state action that changes the roles and responsibilities of local boards. One figure, 15 tables, and chapter endnotes are included. (Contains 61 references.) (LMI)
