Illinois State Commission on the Improvement of Elementary and Secondary Education, Springfield.
This is the report of a commission of 20 Illinois citizens charged with identifying the principal problems in the State's elementary and secondary schools and recommending actions for improving the State's educational program. Three principal areas are addressed: (1) instructional standards and pupil performance; (2) personnel (especially teachers and school-level administrators); and (3) organization and administration at the State and local school district level. For each of these areas, specific problems are outlined and recommendations for State or local action are delineated. Appended are the Senate Resolution creating the Commission which produced this report, a roster of Commission members, a schedule of the Commission's public hearings, and a list of presenters at these hearings.
