"This study investigates the driving forces that affected the formation and development of Queensland School School Advisory Councils in the 1990's. To ground the study, it focuses on the nature, purposes and conditions of two School Advisory Councils within Central Queensland. Using an interpretive and interview-based research framework, policy documents, policy makers and school personnel were investigated. It is evident that the introduction and establishment of these councils had a far-ranging impact on the managerial, structural, and economic culture of schools." -- abstract.
