Language: English (en)
Summary: Democratic governance of public school systems is a uniquely American institution. Despite a long history of local school boards and their responsibility of governing public schools little statistical information has been available on these public bodies. This report draws on the results of a survey of 323 school districts which provides an exceptional look at those who govern Texas small school districts. Almost 80% of United States school districts have 1,000 or less students (U.S. Census Bureau, 2000). This study’s target population was school districts in Texas with 500 or less students.
