Reinventing School-Based Management: A School Board Guide to School-Based Management - The National School Boards Association report explores how environmental, stakeholder and institutional factors have limited the implementation of school-based management. Policies at the district, state and federal level that serve as environmental constraints are discussed, while the resistance of school board members, central office staff, teachers/unions and school-site administrators also are explained. Noting that the institutional nature of public education may be the most severe obstacle to effective site-based management, the authors suggest that developing resource capacity through school board leadership and redistributing authority would help promote more effective SBM in schools. This report can be ordered for $20. (National School Boards Association, 1999)...
