Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"This book addresses a major issue in the curriculum field that has not been addressed adequately in other sources. Well-documented chapters go beyond presentation of new materials and also offer provocative insights to and frameworks for analyzing the material." -- Dorothy Huenecke, Georgia State University

Recent proposals for school reform have involved a significant shift in how curriculum decisions are made, particularly at the state level. In response to these proposals, actions taken by educators have underscored the critical nature of the issue regarding who makes curriculum decisions. This book examines the issues involved in how this pivotal concern has been addressed in the past and how it is being handled now.

Each chapter contributes to a more complete understanding of the complexities involved in the recent trend toward the centralization of curriculum decision-making. The book will assist both researchers and practitioners in better understanding the issues involved as well as the impact of the movement.

M. Frances Klein is Eminent Scholar Visiting Professor at Jacksonville State University, Alabama.
