A Forward Look. Final Report of the Governor's Commission on Education.
Governor's Commission on Education, Madison, WI.
This report is the result of a 2-year study of Wisconsin's educational system in which over 600 men and women and some 3000 students participated. Volunteer citizen task forces, which provided data and recommendations for the Commission's consideration, addressed themselves to 4 major issues: organization of the educational system for effective statewide planning; development of a financial policy that would provide equality of opportunity and equity in cost sharing; formulation of procedures to increase resources allocated to education; identification of desirable relationships between state government and educational institutions. The key recommendation is the creation of a state education board to encompass a board of elementary and secondary education, 8 regional boards, a board of regents of technical colleges, an open education board responsible for integrating educational and communication resources and developing a cooperative learning resources center and an open school. Changes are recommended for financing all levels and types of education. In the area of improving practice, management and results, special attention is given to teacher education, counseling, program accountability, evaluation, student, faculty and citizen participation, and special education.
