Alternative Strategies of Citizen Participation in the Public Schools.
Saxe, Richard W.
The author explains how the traditional (hierarchical and bureaucratic) school district model inhibits citizen participation, and he describes the effects on citizen participation of two other models -- a decentralized model or a community control model. Chicago's experience with a decentralized model and New York City's experience with a community control model are described in order to demonstrate the problems that arise in those models. The author concludes that the model needed by school administrators for community involvement is a political one. In such a model, the administrator is involved in the political influence process -- negotiating, bargaining, and making tradeoffs. (JF)
