School-Based Decision-Making and Management.
Chapman, Judith D., Ed.
School-based management refers to a form of educational administration in which the school becomes the primary unit for decision-making. The book is structured into five parts. In part 1, international developments in school-based decision-making and management are documented and analyzed. Described are developments in Australia, Canada, France, New Zealand, the United Kingdom (England and Wales), and the United States. In part 2, theoretical perspectives are offered examining the broad economic and political dynamics that have contributed to the use of school-based decision-making and management as an administrative study. These are complemented by perspectives in practice in part 3 that address other responsibilities of people at the school level. Part 4 contains the findings of research conducted in school systems that have moved toward school-based decision-making. Part 5 contains an analysis of school-based decision-making and management based on the contents of this book and a discussion of future prospects in the field. The 16 chapters are made up of contributions from an array of leading international experts in the field of educational studies. It is written from a wide range of perspectives from educational disciplines to organizational application. (RR)
