School Autonomy: Myth or Reality--Developing an Analytical Taxonomy.
Davies, Brent; Hentschke, Guilbert C.
Educational Management and Administration, v22 n2 p96-103 Apr 1994
Decentralization proponents argue that autonomous decision making at the school level will significantly affect teaching and learning, leading to improved outcomes. The problem is to distinguish real autonomous decision making from a degree of managerialism that decentralizes administration, rather than decision making. A five-part analytical taxonomy should help administrators assess decentralization failures and successes. (MLH)
