Governing Schools: New Approaches to Old Issues. Merrill's Series for Educational Administration.
Cunningham, Luvern L.
This book for educational administrators covers a wide range of problems, from the difficulties of administering a junior high school in the ghetto to the difficulties of re-organizing metropolitan areas. The author provides criteria for evaluating proposals to solve the problems and gives the historical perspective one needs to view the school-society scene objectively. The early chapters of the book treat contemporary problems and issues ranging from the questions of institutional survival in times of extreme crisis to the larger issues in institutional accountability. Subsequent chapters contain analyses of the relationship between school and other governments, the implications of research on community power for school control, and some new models for organizing schools on metropolitan bases. Concluding chapters deal with proposals for reform such as decentralization and community control, citizen participation in school affairs, and perspectives on preparing today's educational leaders for tomorrow's problems.
