  • Description: Designed to provide an orientation in and foster sensitivity to the field of educational politics as it has evolved during the past decade, this monograph reviews, synthesizes, and evaluates selected literature in the field, and integrates theoretical analysis and empirical evidence. Three themes recur throughout the monograph--that there is a dynamic relationship between educational politics and societal change, that political culture is a powerful determinant of the style and structure of educational politics, and that professional and employee interests dominate in the governance of education. The first part of the monograph addresses conceptual and methodological approaches to the study of educational politics. The authors then examine the main arenas and salient issues in educational politics. Local, urban, State, and Federal educational politics are discussed in subsequent chapters. The monograph concludes with a summary chapter that suggests implications and directions for future research in the field. An extensive bibliography is included. (Author/JF)
