From Image to Implementation. Some Results of Education 2000: A Process for Redesigning Educational Systems.
Kniep, Willard M.
Educational visions developed by two participants in the Education 2000 project--Redwood Falls, Minnesota, and Yonkers, New York--are described in this paper. An overview of the blueprints that are being developed from these visions is provided as well as a description of the design process. The Education 2000 process offers a new design for entire educational systems to link students and schools with the global community. Programs are based on the development of a world view, systemic design, a student-centered orientation, and local empowerment. Lessons learned from the participating communities underscore the importance of committed leadership, shared understanding, and the development of trusting interpersonal relationships among all stakeholders. Two figures and the communities' vision statements are included. (LMI)
