Reconstituting Local Government for Well-Being and Education


by Luvern L. Cunningham 1990

In this chapter I argue for substantial change in the structure and management of local governments, including school districts. I also call for reconsideration of the philosophy, leadership, and management of local-level institutions that affect the lives of children and youth in particular. I propose that the focus of local government be fixed on well-being, acknowledging education as primary to the quality of life for Americans of all ages. Over the next generation or two, communities need to phase out local school districts, local school boards, and local school superintendents in favor of new jurisdictions and authorities through a carefully developed and statutorily approved reconstituting process centered on the notion of well-being.
