The Politics of Education: To Lobby or Not to Lobby.
Rozzell, Forrest
Interest groups in contemporary American society achieve their goals in proportion to the amount of power they are able to exert. Therefore, school administrators should exercise their authority and political power as effective lobbyists to influence legislative decisions on both state and federal levels for the achievement of educational objectives. The school administrator needs to recognize this aspect of his total responsibility, providing legislators with facts and arguments upon which sound legislative decisions can be made and marshalling the widest possible public support for what he has presented.
