School Boards and School Board Problems, a Clinical Approach.
Seager, Roger C., Ed.; Philipson, Richard L., Ed.
This document reproduces a series of presentations made at clinics for school board presidents and school superintendents at the University of Wisconsin and Wisconsin State University. Although school board members are usually drawn from the more able segments of society, they approach increasingly difficult problems (new educational demands, growing activity of pressure groups, increasing teacher militancy, civil rights and racial disputes, collective bargaining, problems of financial support, and the procurement and allocation of federal funds) with little or no formal preparation for such responsibilities. For this reason the Department of Educational Administration and Supervision of the University of Wisconsin organized the clinics to help school boards analyze and solve problems. Use of the "clinical technique" is demonstrated in mutual exploration and analysis of (1) professional negotiations and collective bargaining, (2) school board policies, (3) school policy development, (4) intergovernmental relations, (5) problems of school district operation, (6) changes in school government, (7) schools as a focus of social change, and (8) relations between school and society.
