THE MISSION CALLED O/OS, A FIRSTHAND LOOK AT AMERICAN-SPONSORED SCHOOLS IN OTHER LANDS.
ENGLEMAN, FINIS E.; LUEBKE, PAUL T.
NEARLY ONE PERCENT OF THE U. S. POPULATION IS LIVING IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES. THE MAJORITY OF THESE CITIZENS ARE MILITARY PERSONNEL AND THEIR DEPENDENTS. AMERICAN CHILDREN LIVING ABROAD ATTEND VARIOUS TYPES OF SCHOOLS SUCH AS CHURCH RELATED SCHOOLS, COMPANY SCHOOLS, DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE SCHOOLS, AND AMERICAN SPONSORED INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS. ENROLLMENT IS HEAVIEST IN THE LATTER TYPE SCHOOL. BASIC PURPOSES OF THE AMERICAN SPONSORED SCHOOLS ARE TO PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR DEPENDENTS OF U. S. GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES, AND TO DEMONSTRATE THE PHILOSOPHY AND METHODS OF AMERICAN EDUCATION. CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SCHOOLS ARE MENTIONED AND SEVERAL MAPS AND CHARTS GIVE DETAILED INFORMATION. THE SCHOOLS FACE MANY OF THE SAME PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED BY THE SMALL RURAL SCHOOL IN THE U. S. NEARLY EVERY SCHOOL, HOWEVER, HAS A PROGRAM OR ACTIVITY WHICH IS DISTINCTIVE. THE BOOKLET CONCLUDES WITH AN APPEAL FOR SUPPORT AND UNDERSTANDING IN MAINTAINING THESE SCHOOLS. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE AS 021-00640 FOR $3.00 FROM AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS, 1201 SIXTEENTH STREET, N. W., WASHINGTON, D. C. 20036. (JS)
