Australian school administration, according to the author of this bibliography, is currently moving away from a traditional, centralized structure and toward structures calling for the participation of subordinates or outsiders. The journal articles and books catalogued in this document treat several of the ramifications of these changes in Australian educational governance. The publications included are listed under the following topic headings: centralization and devolution (19 items), participation and decisions (20), school-community relations (36), school councils (13), special projects in the community (23), accountability (18), evaluation and school evaluation (18), the principal's role (39), resource management (12), decision-making (26), education and social change (25), criticisms and proposals (21), influence and influentials (24), government and education (30), equality of opportunity (20), and schools and work (15). A substantial majority of the documents are articles published in Australian educational journals. (PGD)
