Experimental Schools Program. 1971 Experimental School Projects: Three Educational Plans.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This report reviews the plans of three of the experimental school sites -- Berkeley Unified School District, California; Franklin Pierce School District, Washington; and Minneapolis Public Schools. The Experimental Schools Program, an evolving program, is designed to encompass the newest educational ideas as well as to avoid administrative rigidity and program inflexibility. By supporting a small number of large-scale comprehensive experiments with a major focus on documentation and evaluation, Experimental Schools serves as a successful bridge from research, demonstration, and experimentation to actual practice. The report consists of an introduction to the projects, board descriptions of their own project designs, highlights of some of the promising practices in the individual experiments, and some preliminary evaluations.
