A Consumer's Guide to Educational Innovations.
Smith, Mortimer; And Others
Over 35 educational innovations--instructional, organizational, and financial--that have been proposed for American elementary and secondary schools in recent years are briefly reviewed. Innovations are listed in alphabetical order, described, and, where possible, evaluated. A few significant titles are provided for those who wish to explore a subject further. The innovations examined range from accountability, alternative schools, and Black English, to Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI), open classrooms, merit pay, and middle schools. The book is addressed primarily to parents, but should also be of help to school board members, teachers, and administrators. (JY)
