Support for School Science and Technology.
Schools Council, London (England).
This Schools Council Working Paper contains the report of a working party established to review the "form, function and finance for all school science, mathematics and technology centres in the United Kingdom and to make suggestions for a possible national framework." A description of the types of existing centers used by science teachers to keep in close touch with university and industrial staffs, their financing and parent bodies, and their relationship with Local Educational Authorities preceeds the recommendation of a loose organizational framework to facilitate support from major industrial and academic organizations. Appendices list the physics, chemistry, and biology centers functioning or proposed, together with a brief outline of their functions; describe proposed local technology centers, and illustrate their functions by reference to one center; describe six centers with responsibilities beyond a single science; and summarize the school liaison activities of the Chemcial Industries Association and the British Association for the Advancement of Science.
