The Imperative Educational Network: Parents, Teachers, and Concerned Individuals. Volume 1. Proceedings of the Imperative Educational Network Conference (Athens, Georgia, 1989).
Tomlinson, Louise M., Ed.
This conference was designed to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas relevant to how parents, teachers, and other concerned individuals can contribute to the strengthening of the educational support system, and to generate practical information on strategies to improve achievement levels of youth. The first article, titled "Conference Program Prospectus" by Louise M. Tomlinson, offers a rationale for the conference, describes the conference structure, and notes its intended outcome as a program model that can be replicated throughout Georgia. The proceedings document then provides: (1) a keynote address by Reginald Wilson titled "The Educational Achievement of Our Youth: The Challenge"; (2) concurrent presentations, including "Counseling: Bridging the Gap between Teachers and Parents" (Dwight Davis) and "Reading and the Minority Child in Today's School System" (Dolores J. Dantzler-Wolfe); (3) two luncheon addresses: "The Imperative Educational Network" (Claire C. Swann) and "The Athens Tutorial Program Story" (Barbara Thurmond Archibald); (4) three task force reports: "Effective Tutorial Assistance,""Networking Community Support Groups," and "Strengthening the Parent Forum"; and (5) a closing session "Reaction to the Task Force Reports" by Asa G. Hilliard. (JDD)
