The objective of this study is to describe and analyze the first seven years (1985-1992) of the Spanish experience in school-based management (SBM). In order to reinforce the democratization process, local school governance committees made up of elected parents, teachers and students were established in all public and state subsidized private schools in the country. A significant amount of authority was delegated to these SBM committees including the authority to elect the school director from among teachers who were candidates for the office. Data were gathered in Spain through document analysis and extensive interviews with teachers, local and regional administrators, and senior Ministry of Education officials. The study concludes that SBM is playing an important symbolic role in democratic participation at the local level, but has not as yet demonstrated the anticipated improvement in the organization and management of education.
