Nichols, Joe D.
International Journal of Educational Reform, v5 n3 p318-25 Jul 1996
Compares two board members' educational philosophies and motivations, highlighting typical power struggles with patrons, teachers, and administrators. Both board members hold traditional educational values and a "back to basics" approach to curriculum development. Whereas Tom considers his unwillingness to compromise a positive attribute, Linda views compromise and collective reform as empowering. (12 references) (MLH)
