Governance in public education involves different levels of the government. In the United States the federal government has expanded its role on equal educational opportunities to holding schools accountable for academic performance since the mid-20th century. State governments maintain their constitutional responsibility on academic standards, educator qualifications, and school funding. School districts focus on organizing the delivery of instruction and school operation. This entry also highlights recent reform initiatives, such as mayoral control, choice, and turnaround strategies, that are designed to reshape school governance.
