Restructuring Dade's High Schools: Curriculum and Organization.
Florida International Univ., Miami. Inst. for Public Policy and Citizenship Studies.
Findings from a study on the curriculum and organization of Dade public high schools are presented in this report. An honor student mentor group conducted a literature review and held discussions with assistant principals, English department heads, teachers, and students. From this research they concluded that problems in the schools are indicators of systemic deficiencies. Seventeen specific recommendations are made; they include establishing a timetable and strategies for reading and mathematics scores, reducing the gap between white and minority achievement scores, utilizing advanced placement, and instituting controlled school choice. An annotated bibliography of 12 sources is included. (LMI)
