Decentralized Decision Making Toward Educational Goals.
Monahan, William W.; Johnson, Homer M.
This monograph provides guidelines to help those school districts considering a more decentralized form of management. The authors discuss the levels at which different types of decisions should be made, describe the changing nature of the educational environment, identify different centralization-decentralization models, and suggest a flexible method for resource allocation in a decentralized district. In addition, the effects of decentralization on budgeting, purchasing, teaching strategies, and personnel practices are examined. The presentation is designed to show that decentralization leads to autonomy with accountability. (JF)
