The Implementation of IGE In Large Urban Systems: Four Case Studies. Technical Report No. 406.
These four case studies document the Research and Development Center's involvement in the implementation of Individually Guided Education (IGE) in the Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and the District of Columbia school systems. Attention is focused on the results of the Center's efforts to ascertain the strategies and conditions required for implementing IGE in large urban systems and inner-city schools. Each case study describes initial contacts with the Center, internal conditions in the schools, internal conditions in the districts, and conditions in other educational agencies. The major factors that appear to influence the growth and development of IGE in large urban areas are summarized. These include: (1) availability of fiscal and personnel resources and financial stability of the school system; (2) the system's commitment and support; (3) stability and tenure of staff; (4) support of teacher organizations as well as parent/community groups; and (5) the cooperation of teacher education institutions.
