Whose School Is It? Comments on a Deplorable State Almost Everybody Seems To Be Content With.
Krumm, Volker
Although Austrian schools legally belong to the state, the question of who has actual control remains controversial. Issues related to governance are discussed in this paper, which presents a historical overview of the development of educational policymakers' views on governance and the evolution of parents' rights, and an examination of teacher control as a reality. Models for change are discussed--those intrinsic to the system and those requiring changes in the system. A recommendation is made for a denationalized school system based on individual self-regulation to create partnerships among students, teachers, and parents and to dissolve the link among absolutism, educational financing, and nationalization.
