County Funding versus Municipal Aspiration: A Case Study
Houck, Eric A.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v11 n1 p81-86 2008
One town in a countywide school district wants to provide additional financial support for its students. The ensuing debate over governance, finance, and authority strains relationships across the county as multiple political actors and interest groups take sides. The school superintendent takes steps to provide a peaceful resolution to the issue, but uncomfortable questions raised by the debate remain. This case is designed to highlight issues in local school governance, political coalitions, and systemwide leadership.
