How a Citizen Organization Can Influence Policy in Public Education.
Aptekar, Lewis
Journal of Thought, v15 n1 p35-44 Spr 1980
The author argues that direct citizen participation cannot influence educational policy or restore the power of lay boards in public education. Asserting that more can be accomplished by a technically trained organization working within the bureaucracy, he cites the accomplishments of the Education Clearinghouse, a nonprofit group of citizen-educators.
