Factors Influencing Policymaking Gauged
Indiana teachers and other public-school employees feel they have little influence in shaping the state's educational system, a researcher's survey has found.
Instead, says Paul L. McFann, a doctoral student at Ball State University, the predominant influences on public-school policymaking were said to be party politics and money.
Mr. McFann elicited those viewpoints from a survey of 240 education leaders and interviews with 15 individuals, primarily legislators, identified as the most influential in education policymaking.--rrw
