Auditing Public Education. Current Status and Future Potential.
McMickle, Peter L.; Elrod, Gene
This book examines the audit and accountability environment of public education. It provides the reader with an assessment of the current status and future potential of audits of State and local education agencies (SEAs/LEAs) and makes suggestions and recommendations for both auditors and educators. An in-depth review of the development of contemporary auditing provides background on how and why auditing has been changing. A Conceptual framework that identifies important audit concepts is developed and the proper approaches to the conduct of contemporary auditing is discussed. The volume identifies and discusses the auditing agencies that are members of the SEA/LEA Audit Network and presents the findings of The Auditing to Improve Departments of Education (AIDE) Project. The final chapter discusses future directions of SEA/LEA auditing, including specific recommendations of The AIDE Project. The book is principally addressed to educational managers and auditors.
