A Changing Context Means School Board Reform.
Kirst, Michael W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n5 p378-81 Jan 1994
In trying to insulate school boards from city politics and political parties, early reformers severed board connections with other service providers. Today, worsening conditions for children and their families require "undoing" these reforms and transforming the board's role. Playing a smaller role in some executive, judicial, and constituent-service functions would give boards more time to influence children's policy. (MLH)
