Reinventing Government: A Preliminary Examination of the Georgia Initiative for Children and Families

Author: NOLAN J. ARGYLE AND BRIAN MARLOWE
Published in PAQ, Vol. 26 No. 2

This study examines the early efforts and consequences of one effort at
“reinventing government:” building collaborative partnerships at the
county level. It looks at the early implementation of the Georgia Policy
Council for Children and Families Act, an act designed to return
decision-making to the local level. The study assesses the potential of
this program for improving policy concerning children and families and
finds that the devolution of authority to local communities, called for in
this act, is working. The study concludes with insights gained
concerning what does and does not work in implementing governmental
reform.
