Who Controls the Schools?
Marburger, Carl
This handbook for parents and citizens is concerned with three issues: the roles administrators, state school officers, boards of education, teachers and teacher organizations, parents/citizens, and students play in making decisions about what happens to children in the public schools; the power administrators, teachers, school boards, state education agencies, and parents/citizens have; and, what can be done to improve the position of parents/citizens in the school's decision-making. The position of parents/citizens can be improved if an elected council of parents and citizens is established in each school of every district containing more than 1,000 students. The council would have a significant voice in the decision-making that affects the lives of the children in the school. (Author/IRT)
