Hearing the Public Voice.

Web Abstract: 
Discusses the tendency of school leaders to assume ownership of problems and solutions themselves, to focus on politics instead of facts, and to ask the public simply to ratify decisions that have already been made, rather than intelligently harnessing valuable input from the community. Emphasizes the value of thoughtfully planned public hearings and advisory committees to gain and utilize community expertise and opinion. Includes a 17-point public-hearing checklist and a 13-point checklist for advisory committees.
