Shaping School Policy: Guide to Choices, Politics, and Community Relations, Volume 2
Running a successful school is about making decisions - decisions that will solve today's problems without creating new ones in the future. The best decisions will be the informed ones, chosen from the best alternatives available, and based on sound policy.
The author's five-step model provides a systematic approach to information searching. For school administrators who are responsible for conducting a search for the `best' solution to a problem, the model will allow them to cut the task down to size and reduce subjectivity.
