The Governance of Education.
McGhehey, M. A.
A national study of State governance of education has begun under the direction of Roald F. Campbell. The author here expresses concern that the persons conducting that study are focusing on a structure for governing education without regard to the functions to be performed at various levels of government. He argues first that the form of governmental structure in education should naturally flow out of a definition of functions to be performed. Secondly, he proposes that in any administrative structure, the guiding principle on the locus of decisionmaking should be to place every decision at the lowest level of the structure in which the decision may be safely made in the public interest. Finally, the author suggests that there is a necessary relationship between authority and responsibility. (Author/JF)
