Governing the Nation's Schools: The Case for Restructuring Local School Boards.
Danzberger, Jacqueline P.
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n5 p67-73 Jan 1994
Recent studies show that urban school boards are inadequate policymakers and reform catalysts. Lay school boards are not structurally suited to govern effectively in an increasingly divisive society facing unprecedented economic and social challenges. States are chiefly responsible for current local governance problems and should lead reform initiatives. A suggested framework for restructuring local boards is provided. (MLH)
