Education administrators in wonderland: figuring out policy-making and regulatory compliance when making decisions

Padro, Fernando F. and Green, Jonathan H. (2018) Education administrators in wonderland: figuring out policy-making and regulatory compliance when making decisions. In: The Palgrave handbook of education law for schools. Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., Cham, Switzerland, pp. 141-166. ISBN 978-3-319-77750-4

Abstract

This chapter suggests a framework or roadmap that administrators can use to identify key elements in both policy-making and administrative law based regulatory compliance. This approach helps administrators better understand how regulatory activity is taking on the imprimatur of law alongside legislation (statutes) and court cases. It aspires to provide an anticipatory capacity for those difficult decisions that have to be made. What will be seen is that the processes and components can be represented by an hourglass configuration. The hourglass is made up of two conjoined funnels: one funnel leads in to policy formation and legislation, and a second funnel leads out (really overlapping policy jurisdictional funnels) through the rulemaking process and its various components. Navigating the process can be a vexing exercise.
