The Interrelationship of Pennsylvania's Quality Goals of Education.
Bowser, Robert A., Comp.; Carr, Joseph, Comp.
Intended to assist district and school curriculum developers, this report offers clarification of the relationships among 12 state goals of education using information obtained through a survey of Department of Education staff and representatives of professional associations. Defined as the goals of education are the areas of communication skills, mathematics, science and technology, citizenship, arts and humanities, analytical thinking, family living, work, health, environment, self-esteem, and understanding others. Nearly half the report is devoted to summarizing the relationships of each goal to the 11 others. A numerical comparison of the perceived relatedness among goals is followed by a listing of closely related goals to be addressed simultaneously in developing curricula. A chapter on the relationship of courses to goal attainment identifies the degree to which various traditional courses contribute to achieving each of the goals. Other goal attainment factors such as management procedures, school policies, teaching methods, and community involvement are enumerated, and specific contributing factors are listed for each goal. Brief descriptions of selected planned courses are provided as models of integration of two or more goals. (MJL)
