This report examines issues surrounding the transfer of Department of Defense "Section 6" schools--schools run by the federal government on military bases--to state and local responsibility. It reports on case study analyses of six Section 6 schools, describing how those affected by such a transfer feel about it, and noting factors that will facilitate or impede transfer. The study reviews alternative transfer options including no transfer, a contractual arrangement, coterminus districts, full transfer, and an assisted transfer. The report emphasizes the values that must be brought to bear in weighing the pros and cons of transfer decisions and options.
