Site-Based Management: Knowledge Base of Kentucky Superintendents.
Reed, A. W.; And Others
Findings from a study to determine the knowledge base among Kentucky superintendents about site-based management (SBM) are presented in this paper. Questionnaires mailed to all of the state's 177 public school superintendents yielded a 73 percent response rate. Findings indicate that while there was considerable interest in SBM, there was significant confusion on the topic and superintendents were largely unaware of research supportive of participatory management in business and education. Respondents also expressed role ambiguity, resistance to immediate implementation of school-based management, doubt over the longevity of the innovation and a universal desire for school-based management training for respondents and their staff.
