LEGAL PROBLEMS IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF EDUCATION BY EDUCATIONAL AND NONEDUCATIONAL GOVERNMENT AGENCIES.
MCCANN, LLOYD E.
THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL CONTROLS THROUGH WHICH PUBLIC EDUCATION IS ADMINISTERED IN THE UNITED STATES WERE ANALYZED DURING THE STUDY. THIS WAS ACCOMPLISHED BY APPLYING THE PROCEDURES OF LEGAL RESEARCH TO AN EXAMINATION OF THE PROVISIONS GOVERNING EDUCATION AS FOUND IN THE STATUTES, COURT DECISIONS, RULINGS AND REGULATIONS OF GOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES, AND RELATED MATERIALS. THE RESULTS OF THE STUDY ARE PRESENTED UNDER FOUR GENERAL HEADINGS--(1) THE LEGAL ORGANIZATION OF THE AMERICAN SCHOOL SYSTEM, (2) THE FINANCIAL ADMINISTRATION OF SCHOOLS, (3) THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE SCHOOL PLANT, AND (4) INTERGOVERNMENTAL ADMINISTRATION OF SCHOOLS BY SPECIAL AGENCIES. MAJOR CONCLUSIONS OF THIS STUDY INCLUDE--(1) THE FUNCTIONS OF GOVERNMENT ARE SOMETIMES PERFORMED THROUGH THE ACTIVITIES OF TWO OR MORE AGENCIES, (2) PROVISIONS FOR THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL CONTROL OF EDUCATION HAVE HAD VARIABLE EFFECTIVENESS UNDER DIFFERING SOCIAL CONDITIONS, (3) THE GROWING BODY OF LEGISLATIVE ENACTMENTS INDICATES A TREND FROM THE TRADITIONAL DEPENDENCE UPON LOCAL GOVERNMENT TOWARD THE CENTRALIZATION OF CERTAIN ASPECTS OF EDUCATIONAL GOVERNMENT, AND (4) THE EVIDENCE EXAMINED IN THE PRESENT STUDY INDICATES THAT THERE MAY BE MORE RATHER THAN LESS INTERGOVERNMENTAL CONTROL OF PUBLIC EDUCATION WITH THE PASSAGE OF TIME.
