The Bi-Regional Educational Improvement Forum in Atlanta, Georgia (November 1979) considered three areas of school improvement, including State Department of Education (SEA) delivery systems and the use of technology to improve schooling. The three forum articles concerned with delivery systems treat the transformation of policies emanating from Washington, D.C., the implementation of these policies at the local level, the range of SEA dissemination efforts, and the attempts in South Carolina to foster change in the educational delivery system. The three articles on technology discuss demographic and social changes that affect education, implications for the use of communications and technology in coping with the shrinkage in educational resources, and the use of energy-related technologies to improve the quality of community life.
