Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Boards of education are agents of the state, acting as policy making bodies for public school districts in the United States. 1 They are chosen traditionally and legally in local settings across America to perform two general control obligatory functions. Campbell, Cunningham, Nystrand, and Usdan (1980: 186) state, "First they are the official link with the public. Boards are to apprehend, understand, and reflect the public will in what they do. Second, boards have internal management responsibilities which are crucial to the enterprise's operation."
