Governing America's schools : changing the rules : report of the National Commission on Governing America's Schools by Denver, Co Education Commission of the States( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
This report examines governance in k-12 public education and offers two approaches for altering public-education governance. The document is a product of the National Commission on Governing America's Schools, which is a special research group comprised of school-board members, state and local superintendents, teachers, for-profit education and charter-school representatives, governors, business leaders, education reformers, a state legislator, and leaders of a teachers' union. The commission was charged with developing ideas and strategies for modifying k-12 public-education governance to effect improvements for all students. The report is divided into four chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the condition of k-12 public education and Americans' perceptions of public education. It describes national and state dropout rates and completion rates, district performance, and trends affecting the state of k-12 public education. Chapter 2 examines the evolution of k-12 public-education governance, and the development of education from the 19th century up to the present. It focuses on such issues as centralized and decentralized approaches, the influence of industrial management, and strengths and weaknesses of current governance systems. The third chapter presents two systems of k-12 public education governance: publicly authorized, publicly funded, and publicly operated schools; and publicly authorized, publicly funded, and independently operated schools. A conclusion summarizes key findings. Two appendices describe the study. (Contains 57 references.) (Rjm)

Effective school governance : a look at today's practice and tomorrow's promise by Michael A Resnick( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
This paper examines one aspect of school governance--the role of the school board--which historically has governed education at the local level. It discusses the basic and unique functions of school boards in American education, as well as their effectiveness in meeting the rigors of a changing society. The discussion is presented in four parts: (1) the significance and benefits of local school-board governance as currently established; (2) the major attributes of good school-board governance, including examples of school boards that are providing leadership to raise student achievement; (3) why local school boards are preferable to alternatives that have been suggested; and (4) how the state, as a governance partner, can strengthen the capacity of local school boards to govern and lead. Whereas the paper specifically deals with the school-board role, it recognizes that education governance operates in a broader context that embraces the state and federal levels. It also recognizes that school boards are not monolithic institutions. It details how a good local school board will set a vision, focus on student learning and achievement, provide a structure for success, advocate for education, and involve the community. (Rjm)

Local investment in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence by Talusier LaSalle( Book )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
To better understand the commitment to Great Lakes and St. Lawrence protection and restoration, the Great Lakes Commission and the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative partnered in 2007 to determine how much local governments are investing in the resource. Surveys were sent to 688 local governments, and the 143 responses, a response rate of 21 percent, tell a very interesting story. The survey focused on communities with a population greater than 20,000 people. In 2006, these 143 local governments invested almost $3.3 billion in the protection and restoration of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence basin ecosystem. Extrapolating this data to the 688 local governments that received the survey, the estimated annual investment is well over $15 billion. The survey results demonstrate that local governments are committed to providing their populations with high quality water for drinking, fishing and swimming, access to clean beaches, improved air quality, and recycling and reuse programs
