EURICH, ALVIN C.; AND OTHERS
TO DETERMINE STATEWIDE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS IN RELATION TO EXISTING PRACTICES, DATA ARE DERIVED FROM OVER 500 INTERVIEWS AND CONFERENCES, AS WELL AS DOCUMENTS AND OTHER MATERIALS. RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDE--(1) EXPANSION OF THE STATE ADMINISTRATIVE ROLE TO REMEDY LOCAL INEQUITIES, (2) REVISION OF STATE LAWS TO REGULARIZE EDUCATIONAL APPOINTMENT AND TENURE PRACTICES, (3) INITIATION OF PLANNING, RESEARCH, AND EVALUATION OF THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM AND DEVELOPMENT OF A MASTER PLAN, (4) ESTABLISHMENT OF A STATEWIDE ACHIEVEMENT TESTING PROGRAM TO BE USED AS A BASIS FOR PROVIDING SPECIAL ASSISTANCE AS NEEDED BY INDIVIDUAL SCHOOLS, (5) REVISION OF ACCREDITATION PROCEDURES, (6) A FEASIBILITY STUDY TO DETERMINE APPROPRIATE APPLICATION OF DATA PROCESSING TECHNIQUES TO STATE BOARD OPERATIONS, (7) REORGANIZATION OF SCHOOL DISTRICTS, (8) NONPARTISAN ELECTION OF LOCAL BOARD MEMBERS, AND (9) REVISION OF LOCAL AND STATE TAX AND FUNDING REGULATIONS. ADMINISTRATION OF THE JUNIOR COLLEGE SYSTEM SHOULD BE REGULARIZED AND A SPECIFIC MASTER PLAN DEVELOPED TO ASSURE INCLUSION OF VOCATIONAL AND CONTINUING EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AS WELL AS TRANSFER CURRICULUMS. ACCREDITATION, CURRICULUMS, AND FACULTY APPOINTMENT QUESTIONS SHOULD BE COORDINATED ON A STATEWIDE LEVEL RATHER THAN THROUGH THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AS AT PRESENT. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE COCHAIRMAN OF THE MISSOURI GOVERNOR'S CONFERENCE ON EDUCATION, 7530 MARYLAND AVENUE, ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI 63105. (AL)
