What Do We Know About School Boards? What the Educational Research Community Has Learned About Local Governance of Schools. Research Report No. 1975-3.
National School Boards Association, Washington, DC.
This publication summarizes the major themes and ideas expressed by 14 scholars who participated in an April 1975 symposium on current trends and developments in school board research. The report is intended primarily to enhance the awareness of school board members and other interested citizens about the history of school boards, about boards' relationships with other groups and agencies, and about how boards behave and the reasons for their behavior. Separate sections of the report focus on different areas of research that were discussed during the symposium, including historical development of the school board, school board behavior and decision-making, educational governance, and future prospects for school boards and school board research.
