State Policy Making for the Public Schools: A Comparative Analysis of Policy Making for the Public Schools in Twelve States and a Treatment of State Governance Models.
Campbell, Roald F.; Mazzoni, Tim L., Jr.
This book examines the role of state governments in determining public school policies and then develops and discusses several alternative models of state educational governance. Part 1 describes the conceptual framework and research methodology of the study and then discusses the role of the major participants in state educational policy systems. Also included in this section is a systematic examination of school finance reform. Part 2 outlines the structural components of the state education agencies in each of the 50 states and then discusses three models for the governance of elementary and secondary education at the state level, plus several options that might be incorporated into one or more of the models. This section also discusses a survey of educational policy-makers' preferences for educational governance structures at the state level and suggests how the three governance models might be used to appraise and modify educational governance structures.
