Educational Governance. The Governor? The Legislature? The Board of Education?
Brown, Manny S.
Awareness of the importance of education in the achievement of national goals has led to an increasingly important role for the Federal Government in financing and governing education, particularly in those areas contributing the most to the achievement of national priorities. This increased participation of the Federal Government in education has resulted in (1) awareness of the fact that a new relationship has been formed among the federal, State, and local levels; and (2) a rise to the State level and to the federal level in some areas of decisionmaking powers in education. It is therefore essential that questions of respective responsibilities and accountabilities be settled, that appropriate relationships be established, and that a mechanism be created for incorporating the views of each level for educational policy development and for identification of national priorities.
