ES'70--A Systematic Approach to Educational Change.
Morgan, Robert M.
In May 1967, a group of individual school districts from around the nation joined forces with the U.S. Office of Education to devise and execute a long-range program for the development of a new secondary school curriculum and organization. The program is called "Educational Systems for the Seventies" (ES '70). The 18 participating schools represent a cross-section of the nation's schools. The planning effort for the project has identified four broad classes of activities to be carried out: (1) Staff development, (2) instructional management and career guidance, (3) school management, and (4) evaluation. The activity having the highest priority is the setting of educational goals and operationally defining the performance objectives. Each graduate will have received a comprehensive education including the requisite background for college entry and salable job skills. This will be accomplished by individualized instruction. The project also provides for the development of models for curriculum development. The use of computers will be necessary in the management of the learning function and for data processing purposes. A number of related activities have already been started to assist ES '70. (HW)
