Shared Control in Urban Neighborhood Schools: An Interpretative Essay and Bibliography. Draft.
School community relations in big cities are marked by apathy and distrust and, often, by hostility. Yet, many Federal programs and many pressing urban problems require that administrators and communities work together more closely than ever before. This project analyzes evidence from recent empirical research and from field evaluations to identify the most successful practices which have put administrators and neighborhoods together in shared decision making. The key finding from that analysis is that involvement is successful when it is significant. The tested procedures for involvement were collected as a "Principal's Handbook for Shared Control in Urban Community Schools." The present document, which is a companion report to the Principal's Handbook, presents the evidence on which the Handbook recommendations are based and it is organized parallel to the Handbook for easy cross reference. A bibliography of over 300 citations is appended. [For the companion document, the Principal's Handbook, see UD 013 893.] (Author/RJ)
