State School System Development: Patterns and Trends.
Fitzwater, C. O.
Designed to serve as a basic resource for State leadership, this study compares State structures of school districts, intermediate administrative districts, and State education agencies; discusses variations in the control of schools among different States; and points up national trends. Among the implications for action stressed are the need to continue school district reorganization toward optimum efficiency and the necessity for keeping abreast of urban growth in structure and allocation of resources. The study is aimed directly at the need and desire of State decisionmakers to know what is going on in other States and how other States are meeting educational problems, in order to place their own problems and proposed solutions in perspective.
