Constructing a State Policy To Promote Regionalism in School Government.
Zukowsky, Jerome; And Others.
This paper defines regionalism, sets some tentative directions for the concept, and raises difficult questions related to its application in New York State. Regionalism, which offers an alternative to a State-local school governing system, is used to decentralize the planning and management of public services. A regional unit permits district officials, particularly those in metropolitan areas, to join together as an elected or appointed board to determine basic policies. A pragmatic, evolutionary approach to promoting regionalism from within the existing arrangement is proposed. (JF)
