(p.103) 8 Enacting the System into Law and Managing Implementation Politics
A Democratic Constitution for Public Education

This chapter asks two questions about the constitutional governance system: What will have to happen in order for such a profound change in state and local powers and functions to be enacted into law? And, once it is enacted, what is to prevent problems that can arise over time via lax implementation and political pressure? It suggests that enacting the system into law will likely proceed incrementally, in fits and starts as states incorporate some districts into the new governance system or enact foundational policies, like student-weighted funding first. Managing the implementation process will require strategies for preventing provider capture of civic education councils, resisting the pressure to backslide on oversight, ensuring fair access and treatment for all students, and resisting the urge to solve problems via new administrative structures or policies.

Keywords:   Implementation, enacting policy, provider capture
