Vermont Design for Education.
Vermont State Dept. of Education, Montpelier.
Concepts set forth in this design represent the position of the State Department of Education and were developed in cooperation with lay and professional groups throughout Vermont. This statement of a working philosophy directs itself to the process of education with a main concern that an educational philosophy should center around and focus upon the individual, his learning process, and his relationship and interaction with the teacher. The handbook includes 17 specific statements related to this student-centered philosophy, and gives 13 possible activities which will help a school district move toward these goals. The design is to be used as a guide for improving learning opportunities in the public schools of Vermont through these implementation steps: 1) local district assessment of the elementary education program compared to concepts in the design; 2) local district development of guidelines for improving its educational program; and 3) calendar of commitment for implementation submitted by local district to State Department of Education.
