Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)


Educational Leadership


The United States has never operated under a national system of education. Instead, all fifty states operate by a system of local school districts, intermediate units and state departments of education. Ultimate control of education rests with the state constitution and the state legislature. Most states have adopted a policy creating local school districts throughout the state and then delegating responsibility for their operation to local boards of education.
