Analyzing School Decentralization--The Case of New Zealand.
Thomas, R. Murray
In October 1989, the government of New Zealand responded to results of a 1987-88 study on school management by passing legislation that shifted control of education from a central bureaucracy to local boards of trustees. Using a question-answer format, this document presents a model of the decentralization process as it analyzes the 1989 plan in terms of: (1) functions of the established centralized administrative system; (2) factors such as shortcomings of the existing centralized structure and anticipated improvements that motivated the decentralization proposal; (3) nature of the people involved with the decentralization issues; (4) competencies, facilities, and personnel needed for efficiently performing the desired administrative functions of the decentralization proposal; and (5) techniques to be used for evaluating the success of the decentralization plan. Included are two figures. (Author/CLA)
