Full State Funding and Local School Board Policy-making.
Nyquist, Ewald B.
This speech discusses means by which local control could be presented under a system of State financing of education. The author points out some of the weaknesses of local control and then discusses its strength. For example, the author argues that under local control too much energy goes into financial rather than into educational concerns. He suggests that States should be charged solely with the responsibilities of collecting and distributing funds, leaving to the local authorities the decisionmaking powers regarding the expenditure of the funds. The speech concludes by pointing up the need for identifying those powers and those decisions to be allocated at the local level and for providing the implementation forces to establish them within the local level domain.
