The Administrative Transformation of American Education: School District Consolidation, 1938-1980.
Strang, David
Administrative Science Quarterly, v32 n3 p352-66 Sep 1987
Between 1938-1980, the local administrative units of American education were transformed from small, informal community arrangements into large professionally run bureaucracies. This paper explores this structural change by analyzing variation among states in the speed and extent of school district consolidation. Consolidation stemmed largely from the expanding role of large state bureaucracies. Includes 26 references and one appendix. (MLH)
