Perspectives on LRE in the Year 2000. Bar/School Partnership Programs Series.
American Bar Association, Chicago, IL. Special Committee on Youth Education for Citizenship.
In May, 1989 the American Bar Association (ABA) Special Committee on Youth Education for Citizenship invited participants at a retreat to create a blueprint for law-related education's (LRE's) future. Plenary sessions were designed to clarify: (1) the role and mission of LRE in the nation's schools; and (2) the factors that will have an impact on LRE between now and the end of the century, including the impact of demographic change, technological innovation, and educational reform on LRE. Noted educators, both within and outside of the LRE field offered perspectives and perceptions related to these themes. This document is a handbook that contains articles drawn from these sessions along with the reports of small working groups established at the retreat to examine a range of issues. Following a brief Introduction by Mabel C. McKinney-Browning, the articles include: "Student Demographics and Education in the Year 2000: The Illinois Perspective" (Gordon L. Brown); "Developing Strategies of Curricular Change" (Thomas B. Timar); "Factors to Consider in Planning for the Institutionalization of LRE: Public Policy Issues" (Herbert J. Walberg); "Factors to Consider in Planning for the Institutionalization of LRE: Teacher Education" (Samuel J. Yarger); "Factors to Consider in Planning for the Institutionalization of LRE: Technological Innovations and Information Processing" (James Lengel); "Factors to Consider in Planning for the Institutionalization of LRE: The 'L' in LRE--New Developments in Content" (Jerry Goldman); "Establishing a Programmatic and Research Agenda: What Do We Still Need To Know?" (James Giese); "The Process of Institutionalizing LRE Curriculum: Summary Report of Discussion Group 1 (Marilyn R. Cover; Roy Erickson); "The Role of LRE in the Precollegiate Curriculum: Summary Report of Discussion Group 2" (Carol Roach; Joseph L. Accongio); "Teacher Training: Summary Report of Discussion Group 3" (Phyllis Fernlund; David T. Taylor); "The 'L' in LRE: New Developments in Content: Summary Report of Discussion Group 4" (Alita Letwin; Moses S. Koch); and "The Role of Community Involvement in the Development and Institutionalization of LRE: Summary Report of Discussion Group 5" (Judy L. Parker; Douglas A. Phillips). (DB)
