Strategies for Educational Change. Final Report.
Wayne County Intermediate School District, Detroit, MI.
This is a curriculum development project designed to identify, develop, and test objectives and strategies to change educational programs in two public schools--a junior high school in a suburban school district and an inner-city senior high school. The first objective is to discover and test ways of identifying and bringing about changes in policies and procedures to decrease the degree of alienation of youth from school and from society. A second objective is to experiment with new roles for youth in the educational decision-making processes. A final objective is to examine some promising methods of developing curricula for training educators and leaders to identify, create, and implement learning experiences which will provide a useful and satisfying education for delinquent, malperforming, and vulnerable youth as well as for the non-delinquent student. An intervention team model with change organizers in each school is developed and, in part, tested. Strategies to develop organizational change are described. Issues critical to the project's intervention effort are cited. An outline is given of the conditions supporting or inhibiting the change process in each school. (Author/EK)
