Similarities in and Differences between Chapter 1 and Non-Chapter 1 Elementary Schools' Adoption of School Based Management/Shared Decision Making.
Findings of a study that examined school-based management and shared decision-making processes (SBDM) in Chapter 1 and non-Chapter 1 elementary schools are presented in this paper. Methodology involved analysis of recent literature on SBDM, though Chapter 1 status as a variable was not specifically addressed. Three differences were found to distinguish Chapter 1-eligible schools and those that were ineligible. The Chapter 1 schools had more funds than they could work with, less risk-averse governance councils, and staff who were more experienced and comfortable with participative decision making. (LMI)
