Organizing an Urban School System for Diversity: A Study of the Boston School Department.
Cronin, Joseph M.; Hailer, Richard M.
This study reviews the following problem areas: the flow of reports and information to the school committee from outside agencies and staff; evaluation of educational programs and personnel using in part the "deans' study" of the promotion system; present treatment of community relations and participation and the staffing for school-community relationships; the division of labor and internal distribution of responsibilities to determine which departments and functions need strengthening; inservice training for administrators at the building level and special offices at school department headquarters; the potential use of modern management techniques to prepare the budget for review by the committee, city council, and mayor; the use of the resources of the business community service agencies; the size, staffing, authority, term, and other characteristics of the school committee; and, the organizational structure of the school department, its staffing, academic and nonacademic, and possibilities for greater productivity.
