School Consolidation, A Case Study.
The problems of a Kentucky county school consolidation as related to its educational program were examined in this case study. Questions about the changes in the instructional program included--(1) what were differences in purposes of the schools, (2) what are the differences in the organization structure, (3) what are the changes in facilities resulting from consolidation, (4) what are the changes in curriculum, content, (5) what are the differences in the instructional materials, and (6) what is the effect of consolidation upon the professional staff before and after consolidation? Background of the problem included a historical sketch, reasons for consolidation, evaluation of changes after consolidation, and hypotheses for future attempts to solve school district reorganization. Components of the instructional program were found to be related to each other and to the whole. Changes resulted from the board of education providing an instructional program to better meet the needs of all the students. New and better facilities with more adequate instructional materials and equipment were necessary when consolidation occurred. (BD)
