This paper explores the challenges for modern-day school leaders in providing equal effective education to all. The paper examines the bureaucratic and political problems that school principals and educators face in their attempt to overcome these hurdles and provide the best educational system for their students.

From the Paper:

"As districts decentralize responsibility, politics at the school level takes on greater importance. The local school becomes a more consequential site of power. Political activity expands as more resources, responsibility, and decision-making authority are devolved to the local level and as debates regarding the logistics of that authority continue to rage."
