Studies in Educational Administration: The Layman in School Administration

by William C. Prosser & Frank L. Wiley - 1910

The factor of lay control in school administration is generally considered in its connection with school boards. Doubtless most schoolmen think of it in this relation. Their experience in administrative work has shown them this element of control in its most universal form, and their success or adversity in dealing with the lay board has usually impressed them with a high respect or extreme dislike for such popular management. At least the issue is brought quite forcibly to the mind of the educator whenever he is obliged to see educational policies passed upon by a body possessed of little or no professional insight. In educational discussions, also, lay influence is generally considered when the subject of the school board receives attention. During the past few decades the constitution of this administrative organ and the efficiency of its work have repeatedly been in the foreground of live administrative questions. As a result the broader issue of lay control in general has been more or less involved. Generally, however, lay influence has not received much consideration in any other relation than that with the school board.
