Organizational Hierarchy of Schools
This is a chart from Thomas Alexander's 1919 book on Prussian elementary schools. The bureaucracy and red tape of school leadership and hierarchies is demonstrated in this graphic organizer. I can't help but see parallels in our own education system, with just a few "tweaks" such as replacing "king" with "president", etc.
It's a confusing system where those in power know nothing about schools, and those in schools have no power.
Our own Department of Ed organizational chart can be found at http://www.docstoc.com/docs/4865246/DEPARTMENT-OF-EDUCATION-Organizational-Chart-OFFICE-OF-THE-SECRETARY
