Policy Making for American Public Schools.
Campbell, Roald F.; And Others
This publication seeks to provide a basis for constructive action in improving and reforming the policy making machinery of American public education. The material is presented in the form of 11 recommendations directed at the three policy making levels: local, State, and Federal. A recommendation concerning all levels is that policy making staffs be upgraded and compensated accordingly. At the local level, reductions in the absolute number of school districts and elimination of fiscal inequities among school districts are suggested. State governments and the Federal Government are urged to assume greater financial participation in educational programs. A Federal Department of Education with Cabinet rank is proposed. (RA)
