New Directions in Educational Policy. Professional Education Series.
Rich, John Martin
This book is based on the premise that each person, in his organizational and institutional roles, is embraced by a network of policy decisions that influence his behavior. From an examination of the importance of policy studies, the author moves to an exploration of the nature of policy and distinguishes the similarities and differences between policy and other institutional outcomes and operations. Consideration is given to the various sources from which policy may be derived. Policy is examined in terms of the operations of bureaucracies and their influences on policy, and the process of changing bureaucratic school systems is explored in terms of the effect this would have on policy. The final chapter examines how policy is actually made and then offers proposals for the improvement of this process, including a proposal for new relationships between local school districts and outside--State, regional, Federal, and national--influences.
