Abstract:     
In this essay, we review the contributions economists, political scientists, and business scientists have made to an understanding of how local school districts, boards of education, school superintendents, and district offices affect student learning and other achievement outcomes of interest, where and how their work differs from that done by students of educational administration, and the implications of their findings for future research.
