Relationship of Power and Authority in Rural Areas.
The community power structure in the small rural community is examined in terms of how social power is obtained. Also reviewed are methods employed in identifying the power holders in a community, the political nature of the school, the role of the superintendent, and political ties of school administrators with respect to educational decision-making. The document concludes with a brief discussion of implementation of change within a school or community and public acceptance or rejection of that change. (EL)
