The Imperative Educational Network: Parents, Teachers, and Concerned Individuals. Volume 2. Proceedings of the Imperative Educational Network Conference (Athens, Georgia, 1990).
Tomlinson, Louise M., Ed.
This conference was designed to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on how parents, teachers, and other concerned individuals can contribute to strengthening 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 to be replicated. The proceedings document then provides: (1) an outline of a keynote address by Edmund W. Gordon titled "Building Support in the Home and Community for Intellectual Development and Academic Achievement in Students"; (2) concurrent presentations titled "A Study of Ways Parents Enhance Their Children's Prereading Skills" (Dolores J. Dantzler-Wolfe); "Discipline vs. Punishment" (Anne Hall); "Cocaine Babies" (Diane E. Dunston); "Foster Care" (Danny Stevens); "Elementary and Middle Summer School Programs" (James Washington, Jr.); "The Role of the Parent in Educating the Gifted and Talented Minority Child" (Mary M. Frasier); and "An Alternative School Program" (Jeff Pottinger); (3) outlines of task force reports on keeping children in school, community networking, and parent rights and responsibilities; and (4) a reaction to the task force reports by Jack O. Jenkins. Some papers contain references. (JDD)
