Mayoral Leadership and Involvement in Education: An Action Guide for Success - This guide is intended to provide useful information to mayors no matter what role they currently have or are considering in education, with the goal of assisting them in making choices in how they may get involved in the school systems of their cities. The purpose of the guide is to: (1) help mayors understand the range of education issues and problems they may find themselves facing; (2) provide ideas and strategies for potential involvement in education; (3) convey specific information about school finance, management and education reform issues; and (4) give mayors advice on what to do and what not to do when becoming engaged. (Fritz Edelstein, The United States Conference of Mayors, January 2006)...
