Cibulka, James G.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v23 n1 p7-40 Feb 1987
Rational and political theories of education budgeting are critiqued using comparative field data on the management of declining resources in 10 urban school systems. A new rational theory is introduced that explains events in these cities; restructures rational theory; and incorporates political, economic, and administrative concepts. Included are 54 references.
