Educational Decision Makers in Temporary Systems.
Laffey, James, Ed.; And Others
Two conferences were held to assist principals, superintendents, deans, and Teacher Corps directors in institutionalizing the temporary systems of Teacher Corps projects into the permanent systems of the school, community, or university. The overall goals for the conferences were: (1) to develop and test a variety of professional development models for educational decision makers; (2) to help educational decision makers explore anthropology and organizational theory as analytical and evaluative frameworks for viewing institutional/community relationships; (3) to specify generic experiences and skills which would assist change and legitimation strategies; and (4) to evaluate and disseminate. Participants were highly satisfied with speakers and activities in both conferences. Papers were presented on the following topics: anthropology and education; intercultural understanding; organizational concepts; simulation activities in decision making; and institutionalizing a resource center in an elementary school.
