This book is an examination of the relationship between program development and policy-making for schooling. Silva considers these questions: What is the prevailing character of policy-making for schooling? From what sources might such constraints be derived? Toward Lawfulness in Schooling is offered as a plan that could enable schooling to meet the conditions of being rule-governed, rule abiding, and rule-making.
