Community Control at the Crossroads.
Goldberg, Herman R.
The issue of community control concerns the future role of parents in a changing school environment. It is vital that parental involvement be channeled toward positive and realistic goals such as defining the needs of children and determining how to meet these needs. To give parents access to decisionmakers, school boards should consider holding at least half their meetings in neighborhood schools where parents can see their board members and speak on the issues. Some form of community councils are necessary where educators, parents, and students can communicate without rancor and recrimination. (Author)
