ELEMENTS OF A PROPOSAL FOR AN "URBAN EDUCATION RESOURCES AND CONSULTANT CENTER."
PASSOW, A. HARRY
THE PURPOSE OF AN URBAN EDUCATION RESOURCES AND CONSULTATION CENTER WOULD BE TO IMPROVE THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM OF INNER-CITY SCHOOLS BY MAKING AVAILABLE INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE ON CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION, INCLUDING MATERIALS, CONTENT, TEACHING TECHNIQUES, AND EVALUATION PROCEDURES. SUCH TOPICS AS ADMINISTRATION, FINANCE, AND ORGANIZATION WOULD BE CONSIDERED ONLY IF THEY AFFECTED TEACHING AND LEARNING. ONE OF THE BASIC SERVICES THE CENTER WOULD PERFORM WOULD BE THE ANALYSIS OF RESEARCH ON BEHAVIORAL AND SOCIAL SCIENCES IN TERMS OF ITS MEANING FOR EDUCATIONAL PRACTICE, PARTICULARLY WITH REFERENCE TO THE EDUCATIONALLY DISADVANTAGED. CONSULTANT SERVICES WOULD BE PROVIDED FOR SCHOOLS AND SCHOOL SYSTEMS INTERESTED IN OPERATING PROGRAMS FOR DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN. IN ADDITION TO CONSULTANTS ON THE CENTER'S STAFF, A LIST WOULD BE MAINTAINED OF SPECIALISTS AVAILABLE FOR PARTICULAR ASSIGNMENTS. THE CENTER WOULD BE A LINK BETWEEN SCHOOLS TESTING PARTICULAR IDEAS AND PROGRAMS AND WOULD FACILITATE COOPERATIVE EFFORTS BEYOND THE REACH OF ANY SINGLE SCHOOL. IT WOULD LOCATE SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES WHERE PILOT PROGRAMS ARE IN PROGRESS AND WHERE INTERESTING IDEAS ARE BEING TESTED. A MATERIALS RESOURCES LIBRARY WOULD BE ESTABLISHED, WHERE INTERESTED PARTIES COULD STUDY AND TRY OUT VARIOUS TYPES OF EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES. MATERIALS, REPORTS, AND PROPOSALS WOULD BE COLLECTED FROM SCHOOLS, SCHOOL SYSTEMS, AND UNIVERSITIES, AND WOULD BE ABSTRACTED FOR EASY RETRIEVAL. EFFORTS WOULD BE MADE TO DISSEMINATE FINDINGS FROM CENTER ACTIVITIES THROUGH PUBLICATION, AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS, CONFERENCES, CLASSES, AND SEMINARS.
