This project report points out problems and possibilities of mandated educational reform in Sweden. The School-Home-Leisure (SHL) Project was designed to investigate problems within the traditional school system associated with introducing an integrated school day in accordance with the 1976 decision of Parliament. Meetings of a working party formed of educational psychologists, social service personnel, teachers and head teachers, youth club and other local organization representatives are a central part of the SHL project. Taking a total view of pupils as the starting point, the object of the project is to promote and evaluate expanded and integrated cooperative linkages between school, home, social welfare authorities, local authority leisure activities and voluntary community organizations. The work of the project consists of problem analysis, field evaluation of activities, and contacting, informing and training personnel. In the report the following topics are briefly discussed: content and objectives of the project activities, problem analyses, evaluation and activities in the field, contacts and dissemination of information, and the nature of various interest groups involved as a working party. Also included is a list of reports, summaries and memoranda from the project concerning problem analyses and experimental schemes. (Author/SS)
