Federal Role in School Reform from Sociological and Educational Perspectives.
Fox, G. Thomas, Jr., Ed.
This monograph contains (1) five papers on issues raised in a study by Ron Corwin on the Teachers Corps program as an instrument of educational change, (2) a summary of educators' and sociologists' responses to the papers, and (3) an essay by the editor on possibilities for educational change and institutional reform. The first paper is by Melvin Tumin and deals with the issue of organizational survival in the wake of educational reform. In the second paper, author Minnie W. Koblitz discusses the implications of the Corwin report for the classroom teacher. The third paper, by Mario D. Fantini, relates Corwin's analyses to the problems of achieving educational reform in urban communities. In the fourth paper on minority groups and educational reform, Carl and Gloria Grant review the history, purpose, administration, and effectiveness of two Federal reform efforts, Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and Project Head Start. The fifth paper is by Martin Haberman and focuses on the issue of teacher education as an instrument for change in the public elementary and secondary schools. (GC)
