Duttweiler, Patricia Cloud
Insights on Educational Policy and Practice, n21 Jul 1990
Recommendations for implementing school-based management and shared decision making are presented in this educational policy bulletin. Based on a literature review and reported experiences of educational practitioners, four recommendations include: transformation of authority at district and school site levels; development of a systemwide collegial culture; provision of professional development at all levels; and commitment to participative decision making. A conclusion is that implementation of school-based management requires fundamental changes in traditional behavior and the development of new roles and relationships that empower and build commitment among school and district staff, parents, and the community.
