Great Expectations: A Critical Analysis of the Lessons of a Grassroots Movement to Reform an Urban School Board.
Miron, Louis F.; Brooks, Cormell
International Journal of Educational Reform, v2 n3 p242-48 Jul 1993
Explores inherent tensions between the substance of school board reform and the ideology of governance reform. New Orleans's unique culture of privatization has historically constrained grass-roots involvement in educational reform. A recent exception is a highly motivated, parent-based Education Issues Committee that successfully overhauled the Orleans Parish School Board and established new candidate-endorsement criteria.
