Chapter 4 describes the checks and balances that would constrain the CECs and other government agencies. These include the local district bureaucracy, state education agency, the federal government, the courts, teachers’ unions and other private agencies that now co-govern public education. It also explains how constitutional governance would empower parents, school leaders, individual teachers, and voters who are not parents. This chapter ends with a review of how a constitutional governance scheme would meet the five criteria for a governance system established in Chapter 2.
