Public Opinion and the School Board. Selected Readings for School Board Members.
Illinois Association of School Boards, Springfield.
It is essential that school board members understand the important role that public sentiment plays both in the management of the public schools and in the determination of legislated powers of local school boards. The 14 articles from the "Illinois School Board Journal" presented here were chosen for the light they shed on public opinion. The articles are grouped under three headings--local control, school management, and the determination of public opinion. Collectively, the selections provide an overview of the impact that public sentiment has on the schools, ways to assess attitudes in the local community, and how to use opinion research data in decision-making.
