School Management: How Much Local Autonomy Should There Be?
Johnes, Geraint
Educational Management & Administration, v23 n3 p162-67 Jul 1995
While central control can lead to bureaucracy and sclerosis, the local alternative can produce a wasteful duplication of effort. This paper analyzes how different levels of school autonomy affect costs across the United States. Results suggest there may be an optimal, cost-minimizing level of decentralized decision-making authority. Academic performance appears unaffected by such organizational variables.
