Moving toward a Shared Governance Model for Public Schools.
Madsen, Jean
International Journal of Educational Reform, v6 n2 p214-25 Apr 1997
Summarizes a 1992-93 qualitative study examining how three private elementary schools used a shared-governance structure for involving participants in school-improvement efforts. Since private schools must solve their own problems and define educational directions, they benefit from autonomy. They survive by establishing a voluntary community with a collective identity and stakeholder responsibility--a suitable model for public schools. (13 references) (MLH)
