Morphet, Edgar L., Ed.; Jesser, David L., Ed.
The fifth in a series of reports related to long-range educational planning includes five papers presented at a conference in Albuquerque March 21-22, 1968. The first paper outlines the primary goals of an educational program and considers implications of the program for the curriculum, instructional practices, supporting services, evaluation, teacher education, and continuing education. The second paper analyzes basic issues and decision making aspects of operational problems. The third paper reviews the local school system and presents five organizational models for educational governance--(1) state operated, (2) regional, (3) local with an intermediate unit, (4) local as a part of the city or county government, and (5) regional education planning and service units with local operating school districts. The fourth paper considers the state educational organization, analyzes forces influencing decision making, describes the functions of a state education department, reviews features of the state board, outlines factors for selecting the chief state school officer, and projects organizational and administrative changes in state departments of education. The fifth paper considers the economics and financing of education and describes eight alternative models for state participation in public school financing.
