A Model of Quality Education.
Ohio State Legislative Office of Education Oversight, Columbus.
This report, written for the Ohio General Assembly's Legislative Committee on Education Oversight, outlines a model that depicts how quality education in seven Ohio school districts is maintained through a combination of available funds, community context, and schooling practices. Data were derived from Delphi-process surveys of a panel of professionals, discussion groups with consumers of education, interviews with district administrators, analysis of school district expenditures, and a literature review of research. Conclusions are that quality education happens more easily when the community supports the school; adequate funds are necessary to allow schooling practices to respond to the needs of different students (and this amount varies according to the district's community context); and schools choose to use both their available funds and community resources to implement the schooling practices that bring about quality education. Appendices contain a description of the research methodology, a list of consultants, a list of organizations nominating the Delphi participants, and interview questions. (Contains 87 references.)
