Participation, Representation, and Control

by Dale Mann - 1977

In this chapter the limits of participation and representation as control devices are stressed, especially from the point of view of the individual citizen. The barriers that keep an individual from realizing effective control are emphasized in part because so much of the drive for citizen involvement in educational matters springs from intensely personal (parental) interests and in part because recent expectations for more responsive schools have been premised on a model of policy outputs matched to individual demands. Participation, representation, and control recur throughout the politics of education. In this chapter we look briefly at the traditional question Of who controls the schools, then at some of the forms of participation, and then at representation. A concluding section returns to the overall concern with school control.
