Local control and financing of education: a perspective from the American state judiciary

Auteur :
SHELLEY, F.

Description :
Local control of education in the United States today is more myth than reality. The American judiciary continues to justify its decisions concerning educational governance on the grounds of local control. Most states fund education through a combuination of local, state and Federal taxes. The A. analyzes the state court decisions involving local control in school financing, with the intent of developing a more comprehensive interpretation of how local control arguments are used as justification by the judiciary to uphold state policy.
