Several efforts are under way to study school governance issues, including the role of state and local leaders in the operation of K-12 education. Among these projects:

  • The Education Commission of the States, a Denver-based national clearinghouse on school issues, has convened an 18-member panel to study school governance over the next several months.
  • The American Education Finance Association, based in Sarasota, Fla., will spend this year researching the changing balance of power between state and local governments in school operations. The results will be published in the association's 2000 yearbook.
  • California state Sen. Deirdre "DeDe'' Alpert, a Democrat, wants to create a legislative committee to draft a state master plan for K-12 education. The idea is backed by the Association of California School Administrators, the California School Boards Association, and state Legislative Analyst Elizabeth G. Hill.
