Authority and Responsibility--A Need to Reshuffle the Deck.
Lane, Willard R.
The Executive Review, v3 n6 Mar 1983
Local boards of education have the responsibility and authority for operating local school systems, but in a system of any size authority must be delegated. Unlike factories, schools cannot be run from the top down. The health of the schools is determined directly by and in proportion to the extent that principals and teachers have a voice in decision-making. Within the system, authority and responsibility must be more evenly distributed and community input brought into the system. (MLF)
