School Based Management: An Analysis of Special Issues.
Neal, Richard G.
This book discusses seven of the many major issues that schools and school districts face in adopting school-based management (SBM). Chapter 1 presents the rationale for SBM, and chapter 2 describes governance issues. It concludes that SBM does not threaten school-board sovereignty if SBM is properly structured and if the board does its job properly. Eighteen steps for initiating an SBM pilot project are presented in the third chapter. Chapters 4 through 7 examine the development of parameters, the principal's role, the advantages of lump-sum transfers to schools, and labor relations. (LMI)
