Sutton, Elizabeth W.
Supervision of instruction and the education of disadvantaged children in rural areas, including parent-school relations, are the subjects discussed in this 1969 document on the schools of Leflore County, Mississippi. The report contains 3 divisions: (1) introductory comments, where the consultant's general reaction to the school situation and to the educational leadership is reflected; (2) improvement of the instructional program for disadvantaged children, where strategies are organized under 3 headings (revision of curriculum; selection, adaption, and development of more appropriate instructional materials; and revision of instructional and organization patterns); and (3) improvement of supervision, where the consultant recommends strategies which deal with both the content and process of supervision. Suggested strategies for parent relations are interspersed throughout the report. Selected references are included to provide further information on recommended changes. This work was prepared under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (AN)
