The informal communication between constituents and educational policy makers is analyzed in three school districts classified in terms of their social-political characteristics and decision-making style. As part of a larger study, data were obtained by recording in weekly sessions all informal constituent communication with school board members, the superintendent, and (where possible or appropriate), the central office staff. The paper describes how the structure of decision-making influences and is influenced by the flow of communication. (Author/MLF)
