Recapturing the Policymaking Function of State Boards of Education. Policy Issues.
Badarak, Gary W.
A review of literature on state education governance, with a focus on strengthening the role of the state boards of education in policymaking, is presented in this report. Four themes include current recommendations of various groups, the context of governance, governance structures, and key actors in state education policymaking. Policy implications from state legislative research are discussed. A conclusion is that changes in state boards of education entail not only organizational changes, but a paradigm shift. A recommendation is made for increasing state board interaction with the state legislature to influence policy formation. Six tables are included. (26 references) (LMI)
