Journal of Education Policy, v9 n5&6 p39-52 Sep-Dec 1994
State and federal governments have appropriated increasingly greater portions of decision-making policy from local school boards. This chapter discusses the politics and governance of local school districts, summarizing three major theoretical perspectives (decision-output, competition-participation, and dissatisfaction theories) and relevant research. Few big-city school boards mirror their constituent populations. (42 references) (MLH)
