Feasibility Study for a Regional Educational Laboratory in the Pacific Basin. Final Report.
Brownell, John A.
This report presents findings of a study designed to assess the feasibility of a regional educational laboratory for Hawaii and the Pacific islands. Problems considered include (1) assessment of interest in cooperation for research and development among agencies in the region; (2) collection of data on schools, cultural agencies, regional industries, and research and development talents in the region; (3) consideration of alternatives to a regional educational laboratory; (4) assessment of the degree of commitment from possible cooperating agencies; (5) delineation of the proposed laboratory's programs and functions as well as a proposal for the general organization of the laboratory; and (6) consideration of various models for legally joining in a regional educational laboratory. Results of the study inciate a high level of interest in such an undertaking and point out a definite need for cooperative effort in solving educational problems in the region. Research talents of the region were found sufficiently adequate to allow delineation of programs and functions and organizational planning for a Pacific Basin regional educational laboratory. (TT)
