Education as Life in All of Its Aspects--the Greatest Need of the Tampa Inner-City. Final Report.
Battle, Jean A.; And Others
This report of the University of South Florida Consulting Team to the Tampa Model Cities Agency focuses on the desperate need for better education for Tampa citizens. Traditional structuring of curricula is rejected and the provision of choices for selection of learning experiences by the learner is proposed. The burden of responsibility is placed on the learner in the kind of open educational system envisaged therein. A guidance system where teachers, community people, and professional guidance personnel would participate and cooperate would lead to self-direction in learning. The aim of this type of curriculum is to put the Model Neighborhood resident into a series of life situations that will constitute quality education. Education will thus have to be carried out in nonschool settings within the community where work will not be contrived but real. Relating to teacher education problems, the University of South Florida is delegated with identification of problems and production of capable teachers. Physical facilities for education is thought of in terms of a centrally located megastructure provided with space for every imaginable facility. The activities of the education and health component are considered to be worthy of consolidation in this structure. (RJ)
