Summary

The sixth edition ofEducational Governance and Administrationprovides a clear and comprehensive introduction to school finance issues and schools as political systems. Itscase-based approach, descriptive studies of how schools work, and broad look at the historical, political, social contextsthat make up this area of study make this book a valuable tool for every aspiring educator, policymaker, and citizen looking for an overview of the current American educational system. Educational Governance and Administration examines administrative practices with a critical eye and provides a balanced overview of the development of educational administration, taking into account the roles of teachers, students, principals, and superintendents. Extensively revised, the sixth edition contains a completely updated and comprehensive discussion of policy and policy making, as well as the financial and legal challenges that school leaders face.

''I have found no textbooks on the topic to be superior to this one. The authors have distilled the essence of public school governance and administration and provided it to the reader in a manner that demands his/her reflection. The content is well researched and well presented. I plan on using the text in our program next fall and look forward to the new edition.'' -ndash;Larry W. Brooks, Shenandoah University ''This book and its earlier editions are all classic texts for use in intro courses in our field. Ir'm glad to see a new edition on the horizon. The addition of a recent practitioner on the writing team has vastly improved the focus of the book.'' -ndash;John Daresh, University of Texas, El Paso ''I think that the Sergiovanni texthellip;continues to offer the best overview of how schools are governed.'' --Judith Zimmerman, Bowling Green State University
