Some Emerging Trends in School Restructuring. ERIC Digest, Number 67.
Conley, David T.
The vision of school restructuring seems to be taking shape. New themes and patterns in curriculum, instruction, and assessment have begun to emerge in American schools. A new focus on social issues and practical application opens the doors to more community and parent involvement. Teaching strategies are becoming more congruent with the needs, capabilities, and motivations of the learner. Technology is taking a larger role in education, as it provides an interface with sources outside the school, a support for basic skills, and a support for creativity. A new role for teachers and administrators is also evolving and changing to suit specific schools and programs. (12 references) (LAP)
