Decision-Making in a Large Urban School System: Boston
Colby, Peter Warren
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this thesis is to contribute to the understanding of the decision-making process in a political system. When the decision-making process is understood, one may make decisions on how to achieve desirable goals within the system, or may suggest changes in the decision-making process of the system which will facilitate the achievement of desirable goals. Specifically, this paper is a study of how decisions are made in one large urban school system - Boston. Big city schools are in a period of crisis. By adding my study to others on the subject, my purpose is to contribute to the body of knowledge concerning the politics of urban schools. Solutions to today's crisis will come only from a sound understanding of how the present system works.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
