The Public School and the Politics of Coordinating Human Service Delivery Systems.
Kaplan, Michael H.; Warden, John W.
Schools could benefit by integrating some of their efforts with similar efforts of other human service agencies. This might help alleviate the competition for resources among human services organizations. Researchers must study health, social work, business, community mental health, and other fields to gain broader understanding and insight concerning coordinated service delivery. Such coordination will raise complex questions of communication, control, and power. Both legal and ideological barriers impede coordinated human services efforts, but there is evidence of need for coordination and expansion of services. Success will depend on strong advocates for change. Also all professional and lay groups must recognize that their own self-interest is directly tied to the self-interest of others. (Author/JM)
