The Voice of the People.
Hess, Frederick M.
American School Board Journal, v190 n4 p36-39 Apr 2003
Elected school boards' skeptical eyes can guard against bad management practices and ensure that different voices get heard. Problems with board governance are a product of too little democracy. A democratic reform strategy would make board elections partisan, hold them on the same day as elections for more prominent state or national offices, increase pay and support for board members, and repeal or restrict sunshine laws.
