Decision-Making in a Large Urban School System: Pittsburgh
Williams, Ronald Edward
MetadataShow full item record
In the following paper, I attempt to give a brief description of politics in the Pittsburgh school system. The paper itself is divided into three major sections. In the first section, I trace the development of the system from its beginning in 1835, pointing out, in some instances, how politics influenced its development. The second section of this paper is devoted to three case studies of decisions recently made by the decision-makers within the system, and attempts to isolate the significant factors involved in each. The third and final section is devoted to relating my own findings about decision-making in the Pittsburgh school system with a number of generalizations made by authors who have studied other urban school systems.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
