School-Based Management. A Strategy for Better Learning.
American Association of School Administrators, Arlington, VA.; National Association of Elementary School Principals, Alexandria, VA.; National Association of Secondary School Principals, Reston, VA.
This pamphlet summarizes the recommendations of a task force of educational administrators who have experience in school-based management, a process of decentralization of authority based on the beliefs that those most closely affected by decisions ought to play a significant role in making those decisions, and that educational reform efforts will be most effective and long-lasting when carried out by people who feel a sense of ownership and responsibility for the process. Topics covered in the pamphlet are arranged as responses to the following queries: (1) just what school based management is; (2) why schools are turning to this new management process; (3) how school-based management relates to "teacher empowerment"; (4) how it affects decision-making; (5) how to implement school-based management; and (6) what obstacles districts might face.
