What is the cost of maintaining a school board/board of education?
|Posted By: Dr. Douglas Martin on September 26, 2001|
|I am initiating a research project that involves determining the cost of maintaining governing boards of local educational agencies (LEA's) or school districts. Has any prior research been done in this area and, if so, by whom and how recently? What instruments and/or criteria have been/could be utilized to determine such costs? What additional criteria, such as size of the LEA's, geographic location, grade distributions of the LEA's, governing board size, etc., etc., were/should be considered? Lastly, were alternative governance structures for LEA's developed or recommended as a result of such studies? |
