Campus Laboratory Schools in the State University System of Florida.
State Univ. System of Florida, Tallahassee.
This document presents the results of an extensive comparative study of the campus laboratory schools of four state universities: Florida State University, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, Florida Atlantic University, and the University of Florida. Its primary purpose is to provide information which will be useful to those involved in legislative and/or educational decisionmaking. The study is based on the assumption that "there is no serious doubt as to the need for highly sophisticated centers for research and experimentation" and that the ideal campus laboratory school would be one which would be able "to effectively carry on experimentation and research under optimum conditions and with the resources necessary to yield reliable data and in which replicable practices can be developed and disseminated." Each of the laboratory school programs is described in terms of its relationship to a six-part definition of the "ideal" school and in terms of sources and amounts of financial support. Comparative analysis of this data (as well as the variety of materials included in the appendix) suggests that each of the campus laboratory schools now operating should be continued and leads to a number of recommendations for their improvement in terms of the above-stated ideal. Also included is a selected bibliography on laboratory schools. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (JES)
