Political and Organizational Dynamics in Urban-State Relations.
Campbell, Roald F.; Wagstaff, Lonnie H.
This chapter notes organizational and political constraints that have prevented productive urban-State relationships and suggests policies and strategies for eliminating these constraints. The report posits an emerging role for State education agencies in establishing collaboration relationships with cities. The authors suggest that those relationships might begin with such program areas as the development of planning and evaluation capabilities, a reconsideration of school district structures, the relating of education to other social and economic programs, the promotion of curriculum experimentation and reform, the revision of preparation and certification programs, the improvement of inservice education, and the development of a more equitable plan of financial support.
