- Focusing on Phase III: Moving Toward Shared Responsibility and Accountability, evaluate the three versions of administrative integration (stand alone, blended, and subsumed) from the perspective of your own defined philosophy of education. Explain how each version aligns or contrasts with your own philosophy and prior experience with the versions in your work.
- Identify and describe which of the five issues noted in Chapter One presents the greatest challenge to building authority and accountability into governance entities in early education and care settings.
