Decentralization and School Improvement: Can We Fulfill the Promise?

Do decentralization reforms hold real promise for American education? Is there a relationship between the structure of the system and its performance? What can we learn about decentralization from history, from other industries, from other public sectors, and from other countries? And what risks does decentralization entail? Eight distinguished contributors examine these and other questions related to the likely effects of decentralizing school governance on educational practice.
