Decentralization 1973: A Second-Year Progress Report.
Los Angeles City Schools, CA. Office of Education and Management Assessment.
The Los Angeles City Schools, following a plan of educational renewal, are experiencing major changes through an ongoing, orderly process called "decentralization." To assess the progress being made, a task force study was undertaken to determine what mid-course corrections might be necessary and what additional information might be needed by staff and community about decentralization. Over 70,000 surveys forms were sent to all schools and offices in the district, as well as to the community, with over 32,000 survey forms being completed, returned, and tabulated by computer. In addition, over 5,500 open-ended response sheets were returned. This report is divided into four sections: (1) instructional improvement, (2) local school flexibility, (3) communications, and (4) community participation. A fifth section, open-ended responses, was added when it became apparent that other concerns were being expressed which did not directly relate to specific survey items. (Author/JF)
