Deliberative Decentralization

Show Summary Details


Foundation grant-making in Los Angeles, unlike New York City, has engaged a more diverse set of stakeholders. Despite the fragmentation of policy-making and leadership in the district, the social network of education policy leaders in Los Angeles shows a closely linked core of diverse organizations involved in education policy. New policies in the district are designed to bring the flexibility of the charter sector into public schools, and stakeholder engagement has remained strong.
