Parent Participation, School Accountability & Rural Education: The Impact of KERA on Kentucky School Facilities Policy.

Web Abstract: 
Discusses forms of parent involvement and democratic empowerment partially restored in the state of Kentucky, and now engendered as a result of the Kentucky Educational Reform Act (KERA). The creation of citizens facilities planning committees and a process for school facilities review restores at least one new democratic process in the battle over local school control and helps preserve smaller and historic schools. The pre- and post-KERA environment is detailed, with case studies and advice about persisting difficulties included. Includes 17 references.
