Decentralizing the "Future Planning" of Public Education. Project SIMU School: Santa Clara County Component.
Candoli, I. C.; Leu, Donald J.
This analysis draws on a variety of experiences with and models of centralized and decentralized school systems now in existence. The decentralized model or profile posed for consideration is intended as a basis for the development of a process by which indigenous models can be established for any locale as unique local variables are identified and understood. The paper draws implications for educational planning and development in the decentralized school plan. The authors debate the relative merits of centralization vs decentralization within the context of local control, educational costs, equality of educational opportunity, integration, community participation, individual rights, and the overall public interest. The authors also consider educational goals and program development under decentralization. (Author/DN)
