Autonomy and Accountability in Educational Administration. Proceedings of the Fourth Annual Conference of the British Educational Administration Society.
Hughes, Meredydd, Ed.; Richards, John, Ed.
A key issue in educational administration in England at present is the interrelationship between professional responsibility and public acceptability, and between professional responsibility and political control. These papers show how the conference focused on this issue and the question, Should the education service in the future continue as an integral part of local government? Two conference participants responded to each of two papers presented at the conference, "Local Government and the Education Service" and "Institutional Autonomy and Public Accountability." The concluding presentation, "The Specifics of Autonomy and Accountability: A Simulation Exercise," involved participants in solving nine simulated problems. (Author/MLF)
