The Dynamics of Change in American Society: Implications for School Leaders Hess, Fritz.

Dr. Fritz Hess sees in the recent deregulation of a number of industries a potential panacea for local education. The major problem school administrators have had to contend with is a diminishment of their authority, as teacher unions and their political supporters have agitated for regionally centralized or even nationalized control over education. The author contends that deregulation of local schools, along with the assumption of greater managerial control, could produce more effective education and he presents a model of how this could be realized, which excludes unions from the paradigm.
