Abstract

The purposes of this research are: 1) to study conceptual frameworks on the implementation of the decentralization policy; 2) to develop a model for implementing the decentralization policy; and 3) to examine a model for implementing the decentralization policy to promote independent administration in basic education schools. This research was conducted through a multi-phase mixed method. A sample of 320 directors of basic education schools was recruited randomly. The instrument was a questionnaire created by the researcher with the reliability level of 0.96. Statistical methods used for this research were mean, standard deviation, content analysis, and structural equation modeling analysis (SEM). The results of the research showed that 1) the factors for implementing decentralization policy to promote independent administration in basic education schools consisted of relationship between organizations, organizational resources support, communication and campaign, law enforcement, organizational competencies, environment conditions, promotion of school management, leader’s attitudes, and the success of policy; 2) the model of the implementation of the decentralization policy to promote independent administration in basic education schools was suitable; 3) the results of the model examination revealed that the model was consistent with the empirical data (X2/df = 0.99, GFI = 1.00, AGFI = 0.97 and RMSEA = 0.00)
