East San Jose Educational Park Study: Developing a Preventive Strategy for Meeting Tomorrow's Educational, Vocational, Ethnic and Societal Demands. End of Budget Period Report.
San Jose East Side Union High School District, CA.
This comprehensive report of an 18-month ESEA/Title III study outlines the recommendations of the project staff regarding the establishment of a secondary level educational park as a preventive strategy for meeting emergent educational, vocational, ethnic, and societal demands in a school district with 11,000 students enrolled in seven high schools in 1967. The educational park is seen as a means of insuring quality education for all students in a rapidly growing district with 30% Mexican-Americans and 4% Negroes. A number of pilot instructional strategies are described, including use of minority representatives as spokesmen for vocational achievement, visits to industry, college visitation, intradistrict student transfer, and pass-fail grading. The report also includes extensive recommendations from the curriculum subcommittees, references to a number of related special projects, and a review of steps taken to develop community support. Appendices include a demographic study of the district, examples of evaluative instruments used in the survey, and press coverage given the study. A related document is EA 002 036. (JK)
