The Effects of the School-Local Government Relationship on Educational Resources.
This study examines what the effects would be of making public schools part of a general-purpose local government, rather than an independent governmental unit, as is now usually the case. Chapter 1 discusses general trends in local government reorganization and their implications for the school-local government relationship. Chapter 2 summarizes the arguments for and against a close relationship between schools and local governments. Chapter 3 describes the variables in the structural relationship between schools and local governments. Chapter 4 examines the available data on each variable and discusses the influence of these variables on the educational system. Chapter 5 explores some additional questions regarding the importance of the school-local government relationship and suggests some directions for future research. The appendix summarizes statistical data on the relationship between public schools and local governments in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. An extensive bibliography of relevant publications is also included. (Author/JG)
