Project SEARCH: Purpose and Problems.
Cleveland, Albert Allan
The prime purpose of this document on Alberta, Canada's project SEARCH (Selection of Educational Alternatives for Rural Change) was that of acquainting the interested reader with the project. The SEARCH program, which evolved through the felt need to improve rural education, had 2 major objectives: to select and field test promising innovations and to mobilize school and community resources in order to expand potential opportunities for rural schools. Based upon the premise that change comes from within the approach of project SEARCH was through community involvement at the "grass roots" level. Some of the problems encountered were lack of support from necessary individuals, insufficient time to participate on the part of teachers and administrators, and the obstacles inherent in a program of research and development. No specific conclusions were given since the prime purpose of the document was that of projecting awareness of the status of the project to interested parties. A bibliography is included. (AL)
