The population of this research is the members of education councils in provinces, cities and districts of education in years 1381-1382. Among them, 41 members from provinces of Kozestan, Mazanderan, Azarbayjan Shargy, Kordestan, Kerman and Isfahan and 313 members of councils of cities and districts of mentioned provinces were selected through simple random sampling. Furthermore, all related documents and approved issues in education councils of 29 provinces of the country in the two years were gathered to analyze. In this project, three instruments including check lists for content analysis, interviews and questionnaires were used. The result of the project says that in general, councils of education have had poor performance in providing the necessary conditions for people’s supervision of educational programs.
