STRATEGY, STRUCTURE AND VALUES IN SCHOOL PROGRAMS.
MILLER, S.M.
STUDIES INDICATE THAT WE SHOULD NOT BE THINKING OF "THE" DROPOUT, BUT OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF DROPOUTS IN NEED OF DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS AND AID AT DIFFERENT TIMES. CHARACTERISTICS OF THE "HIGH ASPIRERS" AND THE "RETURNEES" ARE GIVEN AS SPECIFIC EXAMPLES. IT IS IMPORTANT FOR TRAINING PROGRAMS TO ACCEPT THE NEEDED DIVERSITY OF TEACHERS AND TO UNCOVER AND DEVELOP THE BASIC STRATEGIES OF THE SUCCESSFUL TEACHER TYPES. SCHOOL SYSTEMS GENERALLY HAVE NOT DEVELOPED THE QUALITIES OF FLEXIBILITY AND ADAPTIVENESS NECESSARY TO DEAL WITH TODAY'S PROBLEMS. SUGGESTIONS ILLUSTRATING STRUCTURAL CHANGES IN SCHOOLS ARE ENUMERATED AND DISCUSSED. MAJOR EMPHASIS SHOULD BE PLACED UPON ENCOURAGING NEW OUTLOOKS AMONG SCHOOL PRINCIPALS AND SUPERINTENDENTS. CHANGES AT THE ADMINISTRATIVE LEVEL ENCOURAGE POSSIBILITIES OF CHANGE AT THE TEACHER LEVEL AND ENGENDER POSITIVE ACTION AMONG THE STUDENTS. THE CLIMATE CREATED BY ORGANIZATIONAL STYLE IS CRUCIAL. THE ATTITUDE CONVEYED BY THE TEACHER TO THE STUDENTS GREATLY AFFECTS HIS SUCCESS. TACTIC, STRATEGY AND STRUCTURE ARE IMPORTANT. THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR SOLUTIONS SHOULD NOT BE PLACED ON THE STUDENT, A PROFESSIONAL SHOULD ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ACTION NEEDED TO IMPROVE THE SITUATION.
